Multiple sclerosis doesn’t stop this Parkite from pickleballing


Myrna Lueck, Chaidez’ sister, introduced her to the game three years ago, and since then, Chaidez said “99.9 percent” of her friends are from the pickleball community.

Lueck said the group of pickleballers the sisters met are the people they go on vacations, ski and attend social functions with.

“These are the people closest to me,” Chaidez said. “They’ve just been amazing.”

For the past three years, Chaidez played pickleball while standing, but last winter her MS, which was diagnosed in 1988, started getting worse.

Any movement is a defiant act against multiple sclerosis.
