About

Hello! For anyone who may not know me, or know my story, I am Melissa Leonard. I am 26 years old and the mother of a beautiful seven year old girl, Calleigh. I also live with Multiple Sclerosis. In March of 2016, I began to experience what felt like electrical shocks running down my spine into my legs. Following this, came numbness and tingling in my left hand. By the time I saw a neurologist, I was barely walking. An MRI showed lesions (scars) on my brain and spinal cord. This led to a confirmed diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis on April 28, 2016.

I would be honored to have you join me on October 7th at Tip O’Leary’s for an evening of awareness, philanthropy, and fun! Proceeds from ticket sales, raffles, 50/50’s, silent auctions, and donations will benefit The National Multiple Sclerosis Society. My employer, Rockefeller & Co., offers a matching gift benefit to increase our generosity! I chose The National MS Society because this organization has personally helped me through my journey with MS. They have provided me with invaluable knowledge, resources, support, and guidance. I am proud to be the driving force behind this event to raise funds and awareness for Multiple Sclerosis.

Ticket Information:

What is MS?
Multiple Sclerosis is a progressive, often disabling disease that affects the central nervous system. In MS, the immune system mistakenly attacks the myelin (protective covering of nerve fibers) leaving lesions (scars) in the brain and spinal cord. This damage to the nerves interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. When this occurs, the individual experiences a wide range of unpredictable symptoms. The most common symptoms include fatigue, gait (difficulty walking), pain, numbness, tingling, spasticity, weakness, vision problems, dizziness, cognitive disruption, and emotional changes.

What is The National Multiple Sclerosis Society?
The National MS Society is an organization that funds research and treatments to stop disease progression, restore function, and ultimately end MS forever. They develop and offer programs to improve the quality of life for those affected by MS. They are a leader in the worldwide MS movement, encouraging involvement and advocating for social and political changes.
