He was inspired to do this because of our dear friend, Susan, who was diagnosed with MS about 25 years ago. She has an aggressive form of MS and is now in a wheelchair, but her heart, mind, and spirit energize us daily.
There is so much I love about Susan. She is the kind of friend that forms an essential base structure in my life. I call her for advice, for laughs, for insights, for the feeling I have around her because she's known me for so long. She's also multi-talented--an award-winning poet, a former lawyer for Universal Studios, a singer in an all-woman's choir in Eugene, Ore.
I hope you'll consider donating to Barr's fundraising effort. He's more than halfway to his goal of raising $7500. You can donate $5, $25, $100--or simply cheer him on by sharing this link with others who might have someone in their family or extended friendship circle who is living with MS. Click link to donate.
