Alessandro was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in August 2007, shortly before his 25th birthday. In 2010, he & Marilena were married and since that time, they have lived every day trying to get to know a disease that is constantly changing. In only a few years, Alessandro went from walking with a cane, then a walker, and now is fully relying on a mobility scooter in order to get around. In 2012, Alessandro's increased loss of mobility made it impossible for him to work at his then-job as a bank teller. But Alessandro turned his focus on what he could do despite his limitations, and he went back to school to get his teaching certificate. He is almost done with that program and will finish in the top of his class with a 3.9 GPA. Over the years, Team Alessandro has raised over $65,000 for the National MS Society through Walk MS! Last year alone we raised over $21,300 and finished as the top 13th fundraising team in all of Michigan! In March, Team Alessandro received the "Mission Possible" award from the MS Society for this notable accomplishment! After giving so much of himself, Team Alessandro is reaching out to the community to help Alessandro in his personal fight against MS. The proceeds raised will benefit the family directly. The recent need for a mobility van, portable ramps, a lift chair, a new scooter, special eating utensils and the countless other medical needs they have had in this past year alone has taken its toll. With your help, we can assist a family that has helped so many countless others.
Every little bit helps, we deeply appreciated anything you can donate. Thank you!
