JTECH Medical is proud to support the National MS Foundation by sponsoring a Bike MS team. Although this is our first year sponsoring a team, we look forward to many years of this great endeavor.
MS is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. While millions of people are affected by MS, it especially hits home when you see someone close struggle with the disease every day. Ann, the spouse of one of our employees, was diagnosed with MS in 1996. Since being diagnosed, she is raising a family with two young boys, working as a teacher at a local elementary school, and struggling through each day to do the things we take for granted; like walking. Ann's 14 year old son wrote this about his decision to ride in the Bike MS event this year…
Hi, I am Tommy
I am 14 years old and I chose to ride to help my mom. My mom has MS and I see how much she struggles with it every day. Even though it is hard for her to just walk sometimes, she never complains and is always willing to help others. I wish my mom didn't have MS, but since she does, I want to be able to do something for her. This is my first time riding in this ride, but I am excited for the opportunity to show my mom how much I care about her, and do my part to hopefully find a cure. I love you mom!
We join Ann's husband, son and thousands of others in providing support for cutting-edge research, programs and services for anyone affected by MS. Ending MS means no one will receive an MS diagnosis again.
We ride for and in honor of Ann, a true example of courage, dedication, happiness and perseverance.
We believe in this cause. Every donation, even a dollar, helps. Every connection matters.
Can we count on your support?
