Perchin for MS
Doug Poirier the organizer was diagnosed with Primary Progressive MS in Late 2009. Doug began to lose balance and strength in his legs which gradually became worse to the point of using walking aids on occasion.
Doug is an avid outdoorsman who loves to fish and hunt. He also enjoys promoting the outdoors and the sports of both hunting and fishing...hence the Fishing Derby as a fundraiser for MS.
In October of 2010, Doug was also lucky enough to go to Poland and have the CCSVI treatment with AMEDS Centrum.
The proceedure has really given Doug some great improvements in his balance and leg strength.
Hopefully Doug will continue to improve and beat MS.
