Progressive MS Day

Progressive MS Day

 

A big day!

 

As we all know March has been MS Awareness Month.  (Timely of me to mention this with only a couple of days remaining.)

But did you realize March 28th in particular has been designated as Progressive MS Day?

Well if you didn’t that’s okay too because this is only the second year of its celebration.

 

It is official.

Progressive MS Day is the brainchild of the fine folks at Genentech (makers of Ocrevus, the MS med specifically for progressive types of MS) as a way of raising awareness of progressive multiple sclerosis.

They invited me to help promote Progressive MS Day (and thereby lower its standards) as I have been living with secondary-progressive MS for many years.

 

Just how will I help?…the only way I know, by posting my usual dumb thoughts on social media (mostly Twitter).

For those of you not using Twitter, I’ll share my nonsense below…..

There you have it, my worthless contributions to #ProgressiveMSDay.  (Bet they can’t wait till next year!)

Whatever day it is, live it to your fullest.

Keep moving!

  1. How did I not know this, and why didn’t Genentech send me a card? Does Hallmark even make a card? And why did I not know March has been MS Awareness Month? I am a News Junkie, so how did I miss this? I guess I am spending too much time Keeping Up with the Kardashians. 🙂 #ProgressiveMSDay

    1. Margaret,
      You need to get your head out of that Florida sand & pay attention. We all knew Chloe would leave Tristen–it was a matter of time!

Making it official.
