ActiveMSers - Celebrating a DECADE
I would like the many who may not know Dave, to know about this guy named Dave. Often humorous and always keeping Active
Ten years ago today, March 2, 2006, I started ActiveMSers,
eight days before I was officially diagnosed. I wanted a welcoming place that
would champion our successes with this disease and motivate others to stay
active physically, intellectually and socially regardless of disability. Today,
nearly a half million MSers have found us from an unbelievable 207 countries (I
know there are currently only 196 countries, so a few have gone away, and a few
have joined in the past 10 years). And you pay attention and actively
contribute to this MS community of misfits--over 7,600 posts on our forum with
5 million views!
This website would be a shell without your enthusiastic participation
and support, and I am deeply humbled every day. Saying thank you doesn't begin
to express my gratitude. Know that if my name were Oprah, you'd all be getting
a car. YOU GET A CAR, AND YOU GET A CAR! But it's just Dave, so you are stuck
with an e-mail that doesn't even have a sunroof or cruise control. Sorry. That
said, buckle up for this next edition, it's a goodie (especially compared to
our very first one, republished
here for old times sake).
