A few years ago I danced at half time with Valonia during the father-daughter Patriette dance. Her father could not dance because he has Multiple Sclerosis. Sadly, it is ironic that just a few years later I was diagnosed with MS myself. Being asked to fill in for her dad was a special moment for me and I appreciated being asked greatly. (Although I am not sure those in attendance could appreciate my lack of dance ability.)
Today as I look back on it, I realize just how difficult Valonia must have had it during high school having to deal with a family member who is afflicted with this terrible disease. I sometimes wonder if someone may have to fill in for my son Aidan at certain events in his life.
With that in mind, I am asking that you to consider donating to Valonia's MS Walk that they are having in Waco. Ever dollar counts and goes towards raising money for a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.

I understand that we are living in tough economic times and I am not asking for much. Every little bit helps to add up to help her reach her walk goal and to help find a cure for MS.
