It's Throwback Thursday... and Turn-it-Around Thursday... and Take-charge Thursday! This month, I want to highlight and honor my dearest friend Lynne Madison! Although we've been friends for 25 years, she doesn't look a day over 25! Lynne is a strong, beautiful, and amazing woman, mother, wife and friend with a contagious humor and ability to SMILE - no matter the circumstance. Lynne was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis a little over 10 years ago. Everyday for the past 10 years, she has been battling, taking charge and trying to turn things around for herself! With multiple lesions on her brain and spine, Lynne is determined to stay strong for herself and her family - despite hospitalizations, medications, tests, trials and still no signs of a cure. Lynne has battled weight gain, weight loss, insomnia, and extreme physical and mental pain and exhaustion over these past 10 years. But, she is still grateful that she can go about her everyday activities with a SMILE on her face. While each day is different, Lynne accepts the challenge and keeps moving forward. She inspires strength, courage, determination and persistence and really gives meaning to "Turn-it-around"!
This month, in honor of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month, I am hosting a Donation CORECare™ class in honor of Lynne. All proceeds from this event will go to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. We often celebrate and honor our loved ones who have passed. Let's highlight someone amazing who is living everyday with this illness and taking charge of her circumstance. Please join us this Sunday, March 26, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. for a fitness class that will rock you to your core! The class will be held at the Myers Impact Holistic Health Club in Baltimore, MD (2030 Aliceanna Street). This class is by donation, and all are welcome! Come sweat, smile and raise awareness and funds with us as we Stop Making Insane Lazy Excuses 4 Fitness for Multiple Sclerosis! You can register early for the class or bring your donation with you! Lynne and I look forward to SMILING with you!
