On May 19th of this year, I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis after going through 4 months of doctor’s appointments and tests. I’m happy to report that I am currently on medication and am doing quite well, minus the occasionally use of a cane on my right side.
On October 11th and 12th, my father will be participating in “Bike MS: Coastal Challenge 2014,” an fundraiser sponsored by the National MS Society. Over the course of the two days, my dad will ride his bicycle from Santa Monica to Santa Barbara CA, riding a total of 100 miles.
A week later, on October 18th and 19th, he will be participating in “Bike MS: Bay to Bay Tour,” riding another 100 miles from Irvine to San Diego.
For each ride, he has to raise a certain amount in money from donations (which are totally tax deductible *wink wink*), and we need your help!
For the Santa Monica to Santa Barbara ride, he needs to raise a total of $350 dollars. You can find the donation page here:
For the Irvine to San Diego ride, he needs to raise a total of $400. Donation page here:
Please not that both pages look extremely similar, so double check which one you are donating to at the top of the page.
Thank you ahead of time. My dad and I really do appreciate it! And as an added bonus, if you donate and then send me a message on here, I’ll be sure to follow you! Please also reblog this and get the word out!
My dad is doing two bike rides to raise money for the National Multiple Sclerosis Foundation in October and donations are currently being accepted. Scroll up for links and please reblog!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, GRACE!
One of the best (to me the best) female singers that this world have ever seen. Thank you for your talent and your great groovy music.
Janis knew more than I did about “how it was”, but she lacked enough armor for the inevitable hassles. She was open and spontaneous enough to get her heart trampled with a regularity that took me thirty years to experience or understand. On the various occasions when we were together, she seemed to be holding in something she thought I might not want to hear, like older people do when they hear kids they love saying with absolute youthful confidence, “Oh, that’ll never happen to me.” Sometimes you know you can’t tell them how it is, they have to find out for themselves. Janis felt like an old soul, a wisecracking grandmother whom everybody loved to visit. When I was with her, I often felt like a part of her distant family, a young upstart relative who was still too full of her own sophistry to hear wisdom.
Did we compliment each other? Yes, but not often enough.
I have the biggest girl crush on Grace Slick.
omg her face
omg her VOICE
