I have partnered up with Edible Arrangements to offer this fabulous giveaway in conjunction with spreading the news that the National MS Society has joined efforts with Edible Arrangements in MA, NH and RI to raise funds for MS research and raise awareness.
How does MS touch my life personally? Thirteen months ago my sister gave birth to a beautiful baby girl after being told for many years she would never have a child. This little miracle baby entered our world and melted our hearts but then my sister started having some issues. Losing feeling on one side of her body, literally from head to toe. I was scared, she was scared and so the tests began. It was mind boggling what would be going on and put a bit of fear in us at the same time, you see my sister is my only sibling and while we had our ups and downs growing up, we are really close adults. Finally, after a few tests were completed it was deemed that my sister has MS. We found out that pregnancy can make MS symptoms flare up, this means my sister has to realize that she may not have any more children for it could really mess up her body with this MS diagnosis. Apparently my sister getting pregnant and having her child made the MS flare up, something she didn’t even know she had, and now she has to test out medications to try to lead a life of some normalcy and raise her beautiful girl. We both are not educated in the area of MS, but sharing this post to help spread the news that Edible Arrangements has partnered up with the National MS Society to raise funding for MS research warms my heart. Maybe it can help more families be aware of what MS is and find more research to assist those living with MS.
This is not the first year that Edible Arrangements has partnered with The National MS Society to raise funds, in the past three years they have donated nearly $33,000 to fund the MS Research and Raise Awareness. Mind you, the locations are in NH, MA and RI that are taking part in this particular cause.
Edible Arrangements stores throughout Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island will donate $5 from every Orange Citrus Blossom arrangement sold during March, which is National MS Society’s MS Awareness Month. Orange is also the official color of the Society. Sharing this giveaway for you all is my way of helping to spread the word, because MS is something that has hit close to home for so may and now it’s hit close to home for me.
