WalkMS 2014, Pocono Raceway

After swearing to never go to NASCAR, I found myself at a NASCAR track, captaining a team with just 2 weeks notice.
Team Julia came in third in fundraising. DD met another girl also first diagnosed as she moved from HS to college, and another a bit older who also travelled from the Poconos to Mount Sinai in NYC.  We think it was a great experience for her, as well as a gentle three mile exercise for us all.

Okay, 1., Did you get us tickets for the next race?  And 2., I'm not sure I've ever even thought about this, but is there any greater risk of MS for an identical twin of someone dx'd?.

The statistics I've found are that an identical twin of an MS patient has a 26% lifetime risk of MS.  On the other hand, that
is 74% of never being diagnosed.
