Alie was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis at the age of 14. She is currently living her life to the fullest, thanks to her medical team’s care and passion. She is grateful for the medications currently available to slow the progression of her disease.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society served as a critical source of information and support to Alie and her family. The Society referred doctors with expertise in MS care, worked with her schools to allow extra time for exams and guided her college advisors about the intricacies of her life with MS.
Alie is continuously inspired by the efforts of so many people who raise funds to find solutions, so people with MS can live their best lives. Stories from children affected by financial hardship motivated her to start a fund for children with MS.
An estimated 8,000 - 10,000 children have multiple sclerosis in the United States. Children with MS can experience weakness, fatigue, numbness and tingling, vision problems, loss of balance, difficulty concentrating or remembering, seizures and mental status changes.
Alie’s Fund for Children with MS provides funds to support children, teens and young adults ages 2-22 who live with MS. These funds will help defer medical and educational costs, counseling and other needed services to ensure a brighter future for those impacted by MS.
