Clay Walker in the local paper

The old hometown rag (South Bay near LA).

This popped up in the google news alerts today which I hope everyone signs up for because you get a wide variety of stuff from sources you normally wouldn't know about.

Anyways, because he is performing locally (San Berdoo), there's a write up on that, and his MS history and all that. No mention whatsoever of CCSVI, being tested, MRV's, or even a HINT in that direction. The closest he came to it is how he exercises to improve his circulation, 'which is important'.


I dunno, I mean, is it just me, or are the "stars" just too timid to both support the MS society, and cast a nod towards our direction at the same time? Why would he go to a round table discussion and square off vs. neuros, then when he has an entire article to speak his peace, nothing, zilch, zippo, nada? You tell me, I'm dying to find out.
At least Copaxone got it's due recognition.
And the Nancy Davis foundation. Nothing else. Personally, I'm a bit weary of all this star gazing for CCSVI support, only to find out later that well, it's more of a "mental nod" than true, unadulturated, unfettered, and wholehearted support.

....Though Walker is now in remission, there are still days MS makes him feel weak. He tries to exercise every day because he says circulation is important for those with MS, and it helps boost the immune system.

He is constantly seeking a cure for MS and holds an annual MS fundraiser - the Clay Walker Charity Classic. The golf tournament will take place June 30 through July 2 at Pebble Beach.

He also performed in April in Century City at the Race to Erase MS benefit sponsored by the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis.

Walker says he feels a sense of duty to help those who are suffering from the disease. His prognosis tested his will, but it proved cowboys are tough and they don't give up - at least not him.

"The cowboy in me made me want to find a cure and to fight for it. That's the way I look at it," Walker said.

"People that know me know I still rope and ride, and I still do all the things I did before I was diagnosed. So that's important, you know, not to let anything, no disease, nothing, take away your passion and happiness."

He has been so lucky to have such a wonderful "beinign" MS. He has been in a very long remission, seems like a nice guy, but not sure how i feel about the article... I really am happy for him, but my disease has been so agressive...ugh..who told him he would die in eight years? What a bonehead:?:
