I am reaching out to you all in an effort to potentially save my wife, Rachel Carter, from becoming completely disabled. A stem cell transplant is her best hope for a long and healthy future and we need your help to make this happen.

Rachel was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) when she was 24. For a long time, she lived a very active non-complicated life with MS only in the background. She was able to ignore her disability; in fact, she ran several marathons. Now, she is struggling to use her hands, often needs help to walk, is extremely fatigued and feels severe pain every day.

Josh I hope the very best for Rachel. I did a little reading up on it and it looks promising. Just know that you have many friends who are wishing, praying,and positive thinking positive thoughts for you. If you think it would help I could also send the kitchen sink, we need a new one anyway. Through it all don't give up laughter. Laughter can make difficult days easier and it is better for healing. I have seen it. A great big hug for all of you.
