My Page Billboard
Hello to all my fellow care2'ers I love this site and what you can accomplish on here.  It gives me a sense of fulfillment to be apart of something so great.  I have Multiple sclerosis, Spina Bifida OC2 and a seizure disorder They DON'T HAVE ME!!  I am very committed to helping others help themselves.  I believe that there is nothing that can't be accomplished with hard work, determination and friends.   My family is my most valuable asset and my greatest accomplishment!  I have few regrets in my life and those that I do have made me who I am today.  I am proud, strong and committed and will never give in or up!

What/who changed my life and why My husband changed my life, he found me at a very low and confusing time in my life and gave me the support I needed to carry one with my disabilities.
