Three years ago my uncle went to visit one of his friends and from that day on his life changed forever. It was around the middle of April and the two of them were just sitting in the kitchen together talking, when all of a sudden something about my uncle changed.  He began slurring all his words and made absolutely zero sense when speaking.  My uncle’s friend did not realize that something major was going on at the time instead he just thought- “Are you drunk right now?” My uncle was so confused because is his mind he was making perfect sense.

and a little poem Gemini style..

Here is a plea
I have made in verse
Support MS
It is a curse
No words today
Describe the disease
But funds for research
Will make me pleased
On my birthday
The greatest prize
Would be to see
The MS fund rise!

Thanks
