Our whole family would like to express deep appreciation for the generous gift of an exercise bike to help with Laura's recovery from recent relapses. The work you are doing is wonderful. When our financial situation improves, we hope to return something to the Foundation, so we can do our part to help others as well. Again, many thanks.

I just wanted to thank the MSF...and let them know how much I appreciate getting my cool pack. The package contains a cooling hat, vest, neck tie, and wrist bands. All come in very handy! I live in the southern region of Mississippi where the heat and humidity can take your breath away. With the use of the cooling system, I can now enjoy outdoor activities a little longer without overheating! Thank you again for the Cooling Program and for making it a little easier for people affected by MS to enjoy the summer!
I enjoyed the book The Power of Wagging Tails and I am thankful for the MSF Lending Library.I’ve long known of the blessings of having dogs. With MS I have to rest often. My malta-poo-cocker mix named Coconut is always by my side. What a precious friend he is! God bless you!

I always look forward to reading MSFocus, which I find well-written, educational, and friendly to the eye. It is obvious in your publication, in your variety of services and outreach, and in the general flavor of your organization, that you are truly “patient-centered” and indeed focused on the needs of persons with MS and their families.
The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation should be commended for the palpable outreach and concrete support you offer. I, for one, am grateful.
I would like to thank the MSF for my refurbished PC. It has made my life much more fun, since I am house-bound and am on such a fixed income. I can keep in touch with my family in Massachusetts now that we have moved so far away to Tennessee.
From the grand state of Oregon, I send many thanks from the MS community for all you do: the wonderful and helpful literature, the returned phone calls, the many services and all the grants.
Last week I did the annual Oregon Health Sciences University MS Center of Excellence Patient Education Seminar. I set up my usual table where I hand out the MSF literature on handling the multiple symptoms of MS. I always receive many “thank yous” so I want to extend those to the caring staff at the MSF.

Thank you for your generous contribution toward the purchase of Sherry W’s new wheelchair. Sherry has suffered with MS for over 30 years and her new wheelchair offers her the postural support and comfort she deserves. Again, we thank you for your kindness and your contribution toward her quality of life.
My family thanks you for helping us get a start rebuilding our lives after getting me out of the nursing home. Your Brighter Tomorrow Grant is the best program for persons with MS who need help and don’t know where to turn. Thank you all so much for making my dream come true.
I assist my husband in the pool at the gym with exercises and swimming. When we are through he has a feeling of accomplishment and he has said he feels better about himself as this is the only way he can exercise. His thinking and cognitive ability is also so much better on the days we go. Sometimes he is feeling so low and bad but we go and he is glad we did when we get through because he feels so much better. This is something that has worked for his physical as well as his emotional stamina. I appreciate so very much the help you have given us to do this.
