'Defying Multiple Sclerosis' author speaks at Women on the Move Luncheon
“Mine is a story of not just coping, but thriving in the face of this disease ... with a whole lot of spaghetti,” shared keynote Ronda Giangreco during the Women on the Move Luncheon.
The foodie and author of “The Gathering Table: Defying Multiple Sclerosis With a Year of Pasta, Wine & Friends” joined event chairwoman Joan Campasano Hoover, co-chairwomen Sandy Bettor and Nancy Weiland, and Western PA MS Society chapter prexy Anne Mageras at LeMont on Sept. 25 for the 11th annual event.
“Every single dinner that I put on, every single week was a victory. During that year, we were having a blast and we forgot to be afraid,” Giangreco said.
Arlene Sokolow, Roseanne Wholey, Beth Kuhn, Nadine Bognar and emcee Ken Rice were among the attendees supporting the goal of creating a world free of MS.
“Find the blessing embedded within that curse,” Giangreco advised. “If there's one thing I learned is this: The path to that dream is rarely wide and easily traversed and we each have a choice — either let those bumps stop us in our path or move beyond them.”
