“NO LIMITATIONS BECAUSE OF DISEASE”
I am 49 years old and catastrophically disabled by multiple sclerosis (secondary-progressive MS)
that finally put me in a wheel chair in 2005. My MS started in the mid-80s while I was a Marine with
the 2nd and 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines. I was a 60mm Mortar man in 2/5 and a 50-caliber machine
gunner in 3/5, but because so little was and still is known about MS, I was misdiagnosed with
everything from depression to being called crazy.
I can still stand, but I have no balance and cannot take steps. Without the help of my wonderful
family to assist me to do other things like moving from my chair to the bed, I would be lost.
Kathy,Val and Tim, I love and would be lost without you.
I’m also an avid Oklahoma Sooner fan and have been one since 1965.
I have been lucky to have been asked to design for Becca Gladden, Beads of Courage, Wally Cahill,
Leilani Munter, Ricky Lee, Mike Corrado, Raisin Junior, Toni Lynn Starr, Armed Forces Racing, J.J.
