Thank You!





The first PICC-A-Thon is completed and I am overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity of so many people. I am touched that you would contribute so much to allow my wish for a motorized scooter to become a reality!

Emery and I both have Multiple Sclerosis. His has progressed to a point where he is in a chair all the time. I can walk short distances, but that’s about it. A scooter will make is possible for us to do much more, since I will now be able ride!

It’s refreshing to see the good side of people! In the midst of all the bad news around us, your love and generosity has shone through!

Once the scooter arrives, I’ll post a picture so you can see the culmination of your generosity.  This has truly been a season of goodwill and love.

From the bottom of my heart…..


A Word from Rochelle

At a time when the country seems so divided and so negatively charged by the politicians and the media, PICC and Friends have demonstrated how we ARE the People in Charge of Change. With this PICC-A-Thon each one had a part in defying the winds of adversity and our reward is great – it is the experience of love and unity.

About Gail Pinder

I was born in New Jersey and raised in a small town in Pennsylvania. I have lived in many places – Texas, Arkansas, Delaware and finally Michigan. Several years ago, I met a wonderful man – a Vietnam Navy vet who shares my love of God and Country! We have been happily married for more than 18 years. I have two children of my own and Emery has two children. We have four wonderful grandchildren. Emery and I both have Multiple Sclerosis. He is now in a powerchair and I am his caregiver. Life is somewhat challenging, but we do the best we can. We tell everyone that “We have MS, but it doesn’t have us!” I have always loved to write and my dream was to becoming a “writer”. PICC gave me a window to my dream and an opportunity to share my thoughts with others. Our faith is strong and I don’t know where we would be without it. We are determined to spread a little sunshine in a darkened world.
