As most of you know, my wonderful husband Rob died 10 years ago after an 11+ year battle with a neurodegenerative disease called multiple system atrophy ("MSA"). I joined the board of the MSA Coalition in 2013 and am continuing the battle against this and related neurodegenerative diseases, by donating my time and money and also by fundraising.
In past years I have shown photos of Rob when he was ill as part of my appeal. This year I want to remember him when he was well, and have you all remember that guy too! He should have had a chance to grow old, play with his grandkids, and enjoy retirement. I hope that because of what the MSA Coalition does, others can have that opportunity.
