It’s MS Awareness Week, and I’ve nearly succeeded in proudly donning our signature color every single day.
Funny how orange, which I once associated with the MS prison I felt locked up in, now has a different connotation. I see the color as one of power, strength, resilience, solidarity.
I wasn’t able to make it to PPC day in Arkansas this year, but I heard that other activists and legislators now know what orange stands for. That’s a good feeling. We’re making inroads in areas where we need to make a big impact.
We just held our first ever Orange You Lovely fashion show, which raised thousands of dollars that will go directly to research and programs for those living with MS.
Of course, the color du jour was orange, in every shade imaginable.

We hope to make this an annual event, bringing together even more supporters.
And I hope this week is one of increased awareness for everyone and that everyone has been an activist in some way.
Fight on, my fellow MSers!
