Pulaski business on a mission to give back

Angie Gregory, co-owner of The Funky Goat, also is selling products inside the shop.

Gregory started her business after she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, forcing her out of her job and limiting her use of one of her hands.

“Some people say I saved the goats life, but they saved mine,” Gregory said.

She’s utilizing goat milk to make things like hand lotion, soap and even lip balm.

Second annual ‘Cure for MS’ car show held in Chesapeake – WAVY

Second annual 'Cure for MS' car show held in Chesapeake

The second annual “A Cure for MS: Car, Truck and Motorcycle Show” was held in Chesapeake on Saturday.

The event was organized by Virginia State Trooper Sam Boone, who is also a member of the Chesapeake School Board.

Boone created the event to raise money for the local chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society after his mother was diagnosed with MS in 2007.

Awesome! Makes me wish I still had my 1969 GTO, it was a Ram Air 3, sapphire blue and had an automatic transmission. From what I’ve learned Pontiac only made a little over 1,900 that year and only about 700 came with an automatic transmission.

Virginia State Trooper Sam Boone, thank you for putting this event together and making others aware of multiple sclerosis.

In Virginia around 15,000 live with MS.

Dysphagia is difficulty with swallowing and speech associated with multiple sclerosis is due to nerve damage in the brain and spinal cord. This can lead to pneumonia which can be deadly.

Each person’s path with MS is unique, as a result not everyone with Multiple Sclerosis will have this medical condition.
