Kate Konieczny, MSYLN President
"I am a MS Young Leader for my mother. Battling MS for over 15 years, my mother embodies the strength and will to overcome all obstacles. I strive to support her strength and the strength of all patients with MS through volunteering with the MS Society."
Penny Desatnik, MSYLN Co-Vice President
"I am an MS Young leader in support of a family friend who is like a sister to me. As the first person I personally knew with MS, it has been both heart breaking and inspiring to learn from her struggles and successes. My goal is to help raise awareness and much needed funds to help her and the many others with MS."
Mary Thornhill, MSYLN Co-Vice President
"I am a MS Young leader in support of my grandpa. His daily struggle motivates me to spread awareness and help others who face similar challenges. Even though I can't be there with him every day, being a part of this group gives me an opportunity to support this cause and hopefully make a difference for those individuals and families affected by MS."
