someone is diagnosed with Multiple
Sclerosis (MS), a chronic disease of the central nervous
system affecting the brain and spinal cord.
1989 Jenni was diagnosed with MS. Most people live with the disease
and some are overwhelmed by it. Jenni was a small percentage that get
it really bad and was in a nursing home with acute chronic progressive
MS. Jenni died May 24, 1995 at age 30. She is survived by a daughter
Holly Bennett now age 16.

affect you...it only happens to "other" people.
Sometimes you don't know what you can do to help the
cause, so beside just contributing every now and then, I have found some way
I can put effort into my contribution. I started cycling in 2002. Looking
for bike tours I signed up for the MS150. In 2002 I raised $980+. I started
fund raising early in 2003 and collected over $2300+, riding in 2 MS150’s. I
have started my fundraising late(have been pretty busy coaching Spring
soccer and softball), but with your help I think WE can beat last
Once again on July 10-11 2004, I will be participating in
Ohio Valley Chapter Kroger Brand MS 150 Bike Tour (but I
will be doing the 200 mile option, which is
100 miles each day). The tour starts
at the Lebanon YMCA through the country side to Oxford, Ohio, they are
nicknaming this tour "Tour De Farms". I am glad the tour is again close to
home this year, riding some familiar territory. If you're out and about that
weekend, you will probably see some lycra(spandex) traveling the roads, so
please give everyone plenty of space.
