Multiple Sclerosis runs in my husband's family.  My husband, his sister, and our neice all have this debilitating disease.  My father-in-law also had MS.

MS's dirty little secret is poor mental health. Mental Health struggles can be the bi-product of a very visible disease.  The physical effects of MS can usually can be seen: weakness and stiffness of muscles and joints, slurred speech, eventual loss of mobility, etc.  But the mental health of the patient is not obvious until there is a BIG PROBLEM.  It stands to reason - the disease's scarring on the brain impacts brain chemisrty.  And the effects don't end with the patient.  The stress can also take a heavy toll on the mental health of family and caregivers. Join me in raising funds that will go directly toward understanding and eliminating mental health issues.

ABOUT 8th Annual Summit Mt Washington

1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.

I chose to join the 8th Annual Summit Mt. Washington HIKE for Mental Health to raise funds for a great cause and reduce the stigma of mental illness.
