“Hello, Midtown Comics Customers and fans of all assorted types of Entertainment Culture, I’m Mike Staub Web Coordinator here at MC. I am ecstatic about the upcoming fundraiser we have planned to benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. MS has had a significant impact on my life as well as the lives of more than 400,000 Americans and 2.3 Million people Worldwide.

My mother is a current MS survivor. She lives with this disease and luckily, my family and I have been able to create a loving and positive environment around her. She was first diagnosed in 2003 when I was 16 years old and has lived with the disease for the past 14 years. During this period of time we have learned much about the illness, but also how to handle it day-in and day-out. MS is a challenging illness to handle as it’s completely effected by emotional state, difficult to predict, and it creates a very slow-moving environment for the person who is sick. People with MS, in conjunction with physical disability, can also experience extreme fits of depression and anxiety. Their disease is tapped into their emotions, and those around them. While staying positive is tough, those with MS need their caregivers to stay as steadfast as they can.

As much as it’s easy to allow the illness to induce depression in those around the sick person, I’ve learned that the only way to conquer MS is to handle each day with undying positivity. The person affected with MS doesn’t need people to commiserate with, they need positive support. If you have someone with MS in your life, make them laugh, cheer them on, and get involved. This will show them that while they may have some disability, there are plenty of helping hands and smiling faces to comfort them.

When Midtown first announced that they wanted to have a fund raiser to benefit the National MS Society, I jumped right in! I’ve always wanted to have the opportunity to volunteer to help those who have been affected by MS. While my mother will always be my main drive to get involved, there are many others who could also use the help. We together can help raise awareness, help fund research, and put a smile on the faces of those who live with MS. Let’s get out there and be superheroes!”

Enjoy saving some money and making a difference, Midtowners!
