    "My mom has multiple sclerosis. A few years ago, she resorted to using a cane while walking, and I remember that really brought her down. After going back to physical therapy and improving her strength and balance, she woke up one day and realized that she didn’t need the cane anymore. That’s probably one of the happiest moments of my life." - Steven Osovsky, Senior
