Thank you, Teri Garr

Teri Garr, award-winning actress, announced in 2002 that she had been diagnosed with MS. The MS Foundation presented Teri with the National Beacon Award in appreciation for her commitment to promoting awareness of multiple sclerosis.

The award was presented on the 5th annual Cruise for a Cause. The five-day cruise was attended by 400 MSers, MS specialists and MS nurses for education, support, and empowerment.

Thank you, Teri.

I am always glad when a "celebrity" speaks out and brings attention to M.S. It always seems to be about breast cancer or other diseases and I sometimes think "Hey! What about us?" I realize Breast Cancer is a terrible illness but we people with m.s. need a voice too.
