Team Hope for Hannah

MS Run the US - 2017 Relay

Welcome to the Team Hope for Hannah fundraising page.                                                                                                                                                   On April 8th of 2015, Hannah Minichillo celebrated her 14th birthday.  She was excited about her upcoming graduation from Holy Family School and entering high school in the fall.  She was experiencing many of the challenges and adjustments that come with transitioning into her teenage years.  Little did she know that soon all that would take a backseat and her life would forever change.                                                                                                                                                 After experiencing some vision problems later that month, Hannah was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.  Through treatment, Hannah’s vision did return to normal but her new reality was living life with MS.  Her family immersed themselves in learning all they could about this disease and getting her the best care possible.  Fortunately, through weekly injections, Hannah has been able to keep her MS symptoms largely at bay.  Unfortunately, at the present time, there is no cure for MS.  There is no treatment that reverses its effects.  The likelihood is this disease will progress and present her with ever increasing challenges.  She may lose her ability to walk. She may lose her sight.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Team Hope for Hannah is running to change this future!  To change this future for Hannah and all those living with MS!  By running across Ohio as part of the MS Run the US 2017 Relay, we will raise awareness and money to provide support for those affected on a daily basis by this disease.  We will run over 200 miles in a week to advance treatments that ultimately halt and reverse the damage caused by MS.  We will sacrifice and push ourselves farther than we ever imagined and be a united family working together towards ONE GOAL, to END MS!                                                                                                                                                   You can support Team Hope for Hannah by donating through this page or by supporting any of our team members below.  Thanks for helping us move closer to a world free of MS!
