Some of us are going to Leakey/Utopia on the Frio & Sabinal Rivers for 2-3 days of wonderful road riding at the end of March. Cabins or camping + choices of various routes (multiple distances/pace). Great training rides for the Easter Hill Country Tour. If interested, email me at WilliamPedalsOn@gmail.com and I will send you full details. ... See MoreSee Less

A few years ago, I was at happy hour with some friends when I received a phone call. The caller id indicated it was my Mom’s office. So I assumed I would hear her voice when I answered. My heart sank when her boss, a physician, said, “Carole, I’m worried about your Mom”. I had ignored my other family members, even the ones with a medical background, questioning what was wrong with her lately. I blamed the heat from an outdoor July wedding for Mom’s not completely lucid day. All of Mom’s moves had become very deliberate and very slow. Even the motion of bringing her fork from the plate to her mouth – it was almost slow motion.

My maternal grandmother had passed away with Alzheimer’s and this was one of my biggest fears. I wasn’t sure I could survive my Mom not knowing who I was. How would my daughter understand that her beloved grandmother didn’t know her name? It seemed like an eternity as the doctors performed test after test. Then, we finally received the results. Multiple Sclerosis (MS). I learned my Mom had been diagnosed with Optic Neuritis in the sixties, and that it is linked to MS. I had heard of MS, but didn’t know much about it. Ironically, I had been volunteering at Methodist Healthcare’s team tent for the Bike MS Ride to the River for years.

In 2014 I made the commitment to ride in the MS Ride to the River on our MH vs MS team. The months of training paid off when I crossed the finish line to see my Mom waiting for me. I rode in 2015, too. This year got away from me, but I’m already looking towards 2017!

I am committed to making a difference that can hopefully, one day help the MS Society find a cure to help my Mom. She is my best friend and it’s devastating to watch her struggle each day.
