It’s that time of year again. Yup, It’s Giving Tuesday, and Melissa Sherak Glasser is here once again to not only thank you for your past donations but, to ask for your support again this Giving Tuesday, Nov 30, 2021.
“‘Give until it feels good,’ my dad would always say! My dad, mom, and some other wonderful people created the Tom Sherak MS Hope Foundation to help people who suffer from multiple sclerosis. Their goal is to give them hope and to let them know that they are not alone.
Hope is so important for healing.
I know this because I lost it this past year. It has been a really hard year for me. This disease seemed to be getting stronger and moving faster. The doctors switched my medicine after 25 years to a stronger one. A year ago, I was able to walk to the pool 2 blocks away. Now, I am only able to walk slowly to my car in the driveway.
This is not my destiny! I found myself frustrated, scared, and feeling alone. I needed a sign. I needed hope. And then it hit me. The Para Olympics!
I am going to train for the Para Olympics in swimming. The thought of swimming in the Para Olympics made me so happy I couldn’t stop smiling! I felt so alive. I had hope again.!!! And I needed to share this. If it could help me, it can help other people! And that is what I promised my dad I would do, help other people. I needed to spread hope!
And you can help by following me on TikTok @melissa.swims4hope on my journey to hope, my journey to healing, and my journey to gold!!
