Fanny Waldman-Dalal, a loving wife, mother and family therapist by profession, has been suffering from multiple sclerosis (MS) for some years now. This debilitating condition is a disease in which the body’s immune system attacks the protective myelin sheath that covers the nerves. MS has increasingly diminished Fanny’s quality of life. She had to close her private practice, is no longer able to work and had to adjust her day by day living. After years of unsuccessful conventional MS treatments and medications, Fanny is seeking new and promising therapies to halt her devastating condition.
Through the years Fanny has given much to her community. She was an active volunteer for school fundraising, and an empathic professional who worked with troubled families. Most impressively, she worked over 20 years with the court system trying to rehabilitate offenders. She held domestic violence and anger management workshops for men and women in both English and Spanish. However, her life is presently on hold and her ability to take part in these activities has come to a halt. Walking is very difficult for Fanny as she has a severe foot drop in her right leg — she has lost the connection between her nerves and leg muscles. Her balance is severely compromised so she has fallen frequently, and dealt with a fractured knee and wrist not long ago. Walking is now a difficult task for Fanny. She uses a scooter to move around the house and a walker when she goes out for short distances. Fatigue, memory loss, standing up straight, and simple tasks like getting out of bed or getting dressed in the morning have become increasingly difficult.

To all my wonderful donors: FYI donations made by credit card on my webpage are not automatically updated on the FUNDRAISING INDICATOR. It takes a day or two for donations to show and be updated and reflect on the Total Funds Raised. If you receive an email confirmation, then your donation did go through. Thank you so much for your patience, generosity and support in reaching my fundraising goal. I am looking forward to the exciting and promising treatment opportunity of HSCT in the near future. Gratefully, Fanny

I was disappointed that I could not join the brunch on your behalf on Sunday. I love seeing you walk your sweet dog, and hope that this treatment will have you back on your feet in the coming months.
