Each year, the National MS Society’s Walk MS events and Bike MS events connect people living with Multiple Sclerosis and those who care about them. When you participate in these community events, the funds you raise give hope to everyone impacted by MS!
Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.
Recently, we met a gentleman by the name of Stephen Lebron. He shared with us the heartbreaking story of a tragic car accident that claimed the lives of his 13 year old daughter and 14 year old son and left his wife; Shakara, fighting for her life.
Shakara suffered a broken rib, sternum, shoulder, neck, spine, arm and jaw as a result of the accident. Her lung also collapsed and her heart stopped beating 8 times. Miraculously she survived, but she now has a pacemaker and is paralyzed from the mid-sternum down.

Aaron Guillemette has owned the Up in Flames Tattoo Shop in Twin Falls, Massachusetts for 16 years. Recently though, a young lady helped give him a brand new appreciation for his art and talent when he was asked by 8-year-old Hope Laliberte to “tattoo” her leg braces!
Hope was born prematurely and has dealt with the medical challenges of cerebral palsy, blindness and a rare form of epilepsy since her birth at 24 weeks.
The National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association (NMEDA) has recently partnered with HelpHOPELive. HelpHOPELive.org is a crowd-funding site that strives to transform the lives of deserving families by providing them with tools to raise needed funds. The funds help to bridge the gap between what an individual’s health insurance will pay and the actual costs of medical/adaptive equipment.
One attribute which sets HelpHOPELive apart from other crowd-funding sites is that they are a 501c non-profit organization. 501c status means that all donations made are tax deductible and are also eligible to receive matching grants. In addition, funds raised are not counted as income or assets and therefore will not jeopardize an individual’s Medicaid benefits.
