Well worth a listen

I do not have any friends with MS, but have known some patients of mine over the years that have been diagnosed with it. What an amazing event to hold to raise money and awareness, and the enthusiasm of Ken for his subject is obvious. The production is professional and I could easily imagine hearing this as a weekly program on a radio station.

Inspirational

Great podcast that gives you hope and inspiration on how you can make a change in the world today. I especially liked the informational tid bits about where the often overlooked places to raise money are and the upbeat discussion on working towards a cure. Way to be the change, you guys are awesome.
