At the conclusion of my trip to Washington DC for the National MS Public Policy Conference in March, I was asked to write an article for the Summer MS Connection newsletter for the Ohio Buckeye Chapter about my experience. Thanks Dad, Leslie, and Molly for helping me to edit my thoughts to 500 words...that was a challenge LOL Happy reading!

With the seasons changing and the cold going away (hopefully soon), it means that it is the time of year for the annual MS Walk. Our family has been receiving a lot of inquires as to whether or not we will be participating in the 2015 Mahoning Valley MS Walk. I write today to say that we have decided to continue to take a rest from the annual MS Walk. It is possible that our family may walk the morning of April 18 at the Mahoning Valley Scrappers Stadium in support of a world free of MS, but it will be a decision based on the weath...

Last week, I was reading an article in the Youngstown Vindicator, Youngstown Riders team to bicycle 150-mile round trip for MS regarding a four-person team called the Youngstown Riders who will be riding this weekend (August 2 and 3) in the Bike MS: Pedal to the Point. As soon as I read that they were biking to support MS I was, of course, hooked. The article also noted that they train by riding 30-50 miles a day in Mill Creek MetroParks. After reading about their training venue, I needed to meet this group. I had started to see se...

There are many times throughout our lives when we are thrown curve balls. Although the Villella Family has felt its fair share of curve balls over these last few years, we know that everyone has problems to deal with. So, in spite of your own problems that you and/or your family are dealing with, we appreciate the continued love, support and prayers you send our way. We hope, too, that you realize that we return those prayers and love back to you a 100-fold.

Some of you already know that we were thrown our most recent curve ball on...

With the seasons changing and the cold going away (hopefully soon), it means that it is the time of year for the annual MS Walk. I write today to say that we have decided to take a rest this year from the annual Mahoning Valley MS Walk. With our family’s recent move to a new residence and sale of our previous residence and several things still up in the air, we simply did not have the time to coordinate and properly prepare for this year’s walk. So, we thought it was best to skip this year.

Do not get too comfortable on that couch,...

The Tackle MS…Cleats & Cold Ones fundraiser on November 8, 2013 was a winning event. Through the generosity of those who attended, donated and contributed, KV’s Krew, Inc. netted $4,037 which will be contributed to the MS Society – Ohio Buckeye Chapter. Since 2009, between five MS Walks and two fundraising dinners, we have raised $40,932 for the MS Society.

The MS Society needs our help! The Villella Family created this event because the MS Society needs people to promote education and awareness and they need money for research...

Grab your walking shoes and get ready for the 2013 Mahoning Valley MS Walk! As we approach our fifth year of participating in this important fundraiser, I am following the mantra – “Go big or go home!” Seriously, though, it humbles me by how many friends and family members have supported our family in this journey.

The following are all unfortunate facts about MS. Did you know that approximately 400,000 Americans have MS? Did you know that most are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, and about two thirds are women? Did you know...

Each year, my Dad and Mom have a mass said in honor of all the members and supporters of KV's Krew for their compassion, love and support. This year’s mass will be Saturday, February 9, 2013, at 4 p.m. at St. Charles in Boardman, Ohio. All are welcomed to attend.

As always, thank you for all you have done for my Mom and all other MS patients!

Richard Mulhall, a former student of my Mom’s and a current Kent State University student studying magazine journalism, approached my Mom about doing a feature story on her and MS. He began working on this project in September 2012 for his Multimedia Techniques class. He thought of a number of different story ideas, but the best idea that came to his mind was a story about his 8th grade teacher, my Mom.

My Mom was Richie’s Reading teacher in 6th and 7th grade, and she was his 8th grade teacher for the 2007-2008 school year. “She tau...
