On Saturday, June 23, 2012 Palmica Haith held her first fund-raising event to increase awareness about Multiple Sclerosis and for those fighting Cancer. Recently, she has been diagnosed with the debilitating disease but hasn’t allowed her condition to hinder any ambitions for her life. She says she came up with the name “Fighting For Your Life” because everyday is a fight, not just with your health but also with life. “After I had my son in May of 2010, I started feeling bad was told I had Vertigo (a condition in which somebody feels a sensation of whirling or tilting that causes a loss of balance). I was sent to a Ear, Nose and Throat specialist who performed a MRI on me,” she says. He later called her at work and shared his suspicions of her being afflicted with MS.

At first Haith says she didn’t want to accept the news. She had other things going on her life. “Everything was going so fast I didn’t take the time to really inhale. All that was on my mind were my children and would I be there to care for them,” she says.

A common challenge for patients diagnosed with MS is affording the treatment and medication. With her event, Haith’s’ goal was to increase my knowledge about her ailment and that of her family and friends also. When her uncle Clark, who had been battling cancer was told that he only had six months to live, she wanted to include his fight in her event as well. “My uncle always loved to have a good time. He was called superman because no matter what the situation, he was always there for his family and friends,” says Haith.

She says she truly believe she will be healed. Plans are in action for the 2nd Annual Prosperity For Life event in 2013. Haith says she also wants to produce other fund-raising and awareness functions throughout the year as well. “I hope to reach as many people as possible. Life is a journey you never know the outcome all you can do is not to take life or people for granted and to thank God to be here everyday,” she says.
