Help Phil

Every hour someone is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic disease of the central nervous system affecting the brain and spinal cord. Until recently, these sort of things seemed to only happen to other people. However, a few years ago Jen’s cousin Phil Smith was diagnosed with MS and it has crept closer to home.

Phil is a loving husband and father to three wonderful young children. Please help by sponsoring Jen in this year’s MS 150, a two-day, 150 mile bike tour from Boulder to Estes Park and back. With your generous support, we can end the devastating effects of MS, sooner rather than later. To sponsor Jen, go to
