Tenth Annual MS Walk for Life 2020. 15791
Council: 15791 - FALMOUTH
One of our council brothers who is living with Multiple Sclerosis, participated once again doing the 2020 MS Walk in Five Islands Co-Op. Georgetown, on May 30, 2020. This year has marked the tenth year he has participated in the MS Walk event. In fact this year he and his Team raised $4,813 for the Multiple Sclerosis Program in Maine. He alone raised $3,100.00. His Team consisted of nine members, and this years walk was a five mile walk in Georgetown. Our council brother also spent 20 hours as a phone volunteer , and enjoyed every minute of it. Our council brother is also on a very strict and expensive injection program for his illness. The injections he takes weekly, Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday cost $7,000 a month. He is fortunate thou that he does get Insurance assistance in paying for this medication. Our brother keeps involved in his life, and has a very positive outlook toward maintaining this illness and enjoy life to its fullest. This year Brother Frank has stepped up to become our new council Advocate once again. Thanks to the overwhelming support of his Family and Friends it is working. GOD truly Blesses us with miracles some time, and in the case with this brother, this is one.
