GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOTV) Ashleigh Looman is a mom to a beautiful baby girl, a wife, and a student. She was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis on July 29, 2013. Since that day, she made it her mission to bring awareness of the disease to her family, friends, and the community. She created a video blog on YouTube that chronicles her journey with MS, how it’s being treated, and the struggles and victories she has as she lives with the disease.
Ashleigh says she wants to take her story public so anyone living with MS knows there is someone who understands what they are going through.
Ashleigh is participating in the Grand Rapids Walk MS 2014 to raise money for new treatment options and a cure for Multiple Sclerosis. It’s at Aquinas College on Saturday, May 17, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. If you would like to help, visit her fundraising web page by clicking here.
