Nationals’ Ryan Zimmerman raises MS awareness

Last Thursday provided a rare home off-day for the first-place Washington Nationals. But Ryan Zimmerman, the team's All-Star third baseman, still spent his night at the ballpark. Zimmerman had important business at his third annual "Night at the Park" fund-raiser at Nationals Park to raise money to fight multiple sclerosis -- the chronic disease which has crippled his mother, Cheryl, since her diagnosis in 1995.

Cheryl Zimmerman and Her Family

The Zimmerman family (Cheryl, Keith, Ryan and Shawn) would like to tell you how their lives have been affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS) over the past 24 years. Cheryl’s perspective: The year is 1985 before the symptoms of MS began. I was leading what most would consider a normal life for a newly married, young, working mother. A typical day for me included: getting up, taking a shower, dressing, brushing my teeth, getting a one-year old ready, fixing and eating breakfast, driving to day care and then on to a full day with my first grade class. A year later in 1986 my body started to change. It started with a tingling in the little finger on my left hand. This tingling eventually progressed to the entire left side of my body. During this year I went to many doctors and had numerous tests preformed. The tingling would at times get worse or go away completely. The doctors and my family were baffled!
