Welcome to my 2020 Swim for MS!
Hello All my name is Paul Ojakian and welcome to my 2020 Swim for MS! I know it seems like only yesterday since we had this event and that's because it was only this past August that we were doing this. Remember I tore my rotator cuff, had surgery on Fer 11th? Now we are back on track doing ths swim for MS during actual MS awareness Month. So hello again!
A brief history of MS and the Ojakian family. In 1974 my father Eugene was diagnosed with MS. None of us knew exactly what this MS was. Then in 1975 I had my first exacerbation but was misdiagnosed with Gulium Bourret later to be diagnosed with MS in 1990. Two years later my sister Cathy was diagnosed. We were all wondering what was going on with this thing called MS and the Ojakian family. My dad passed away in June of 2013 after living with the disease for 50 years(God Bless my Mom)! I am trying to keep myself in as good as shape as possible by swimming each day using my arms only. I swim a 1/2 mile each day. You never know when a cure is just around the corner.
Please consider making a donation to help combat this disease that affects mine and so many families!
Thank you and as always keep moving in what ever capacity possible.
