The next morning got off to a rough start. I went downstairs to get a cup of hot chocolate from Starbucks (my favorite) and ended up dropping the whole cup as I tried to get back into my room! Good news is that I was still wearing my casual clothes and not the ones I planned on wearing to the event. Things got better especially since it was such a beautiful day! There was a pretty good turnout for the MS Walk. I really enjoyed standing at the booth and getting to talk to people who came over. It’s always great to talk to others that have MS or know someone close to them who has it. You instantly have a bond with these people and I love being able to be an encouragement to others. One elderly lady walked up and started telling us how her daughter has MS and every year she makes 30-40 bands to hand out that go around your neck and keep you cool. It’s just her way of helping others. I also met the “one” that everyone talks about who had to get off Gilenya because her blood pressure would not come down. She didn’t go into too much detail about her MS and I’m sure it’s because she has had to tell so many other people. She has been on all the meds and nothing is really helping control her MS. I’ll be praying for her. Although many people came to the Gilenya booth, only 5 ended up staying for the presentation. I totally understand since they came to do the walk and that’s great. I enjoyed talking to those 5 people just as much as having little conversations with all the other people from the day. Another successful event done and ready for the next one in Dallas!
