Dear Family and Friends,

Since 2009, I’ve been active in the MS community, as both a Bike MS Champion and Chapter Ambassador for the MS Society, and helping to build the nonprofit organization Makeover Your MS. I am currently expanding my service to the Multiple Sclerosis (“MS”) community by building a network of resources to help empower women living with MS.  My vision is to become a premier provider of education and coaching services that maximize each woman’s ability to live her best life while living with MS.

As many of you know, I have been living with MS since 2001.  After many discouraging years of living resigned to a “less-than” life because of MS-related disability and complications, I finally found my way out of that space and onto the path of living a full life in spite of the MS.  My mission is to help other women living with MS to be able to do the same. 

I began this particular venture as a volunteer/“labor of love” project and, this past year, extremely positive responses to both my book “Overcome The BS of MS” and the support group I’ve begun building (Rockstar Women With MS) have confirmed the need for these services.  With your generous donations to date, I’ve been able to start laying the necessary foundation. My goal in this coming year is to build it into a sustainable business that will provide both free and affordable services to women living with MS as well as help me to maintain my own financial independence as I continue living with MS.

I am asking all of you to help me continue my forward momentum by making a contribution.  Your contribution will help me to purchase the services required to maintain and build out the  proper online platforms to provide education and services to clients internationally, and to begin a marketing campaign.  The dollar amount does not matter, whether it’s $1, $10, $25, $100, or whatever your heart leads you to give—It is the willingness to give and support me in this mission that counts the most. Every bit counts and will be put to good use.

I believe that every successful business begins with the support of family and friends near and far. If you are not able to donate at this time, I simply ask that you “Like” and share this campaign on Facebook, or share it via email or offline.

Thank you in advance for helping me to succeed in this life purpose of serving the MS community.  You are greatly appreciated!

With Love, Sincere Thanks and Gratitude,

Lisa

Hi. The final website updates are complete and I just made my first free email course available: "The MS Warrior's Guide To Defeating Fatigue." Thanks again to all of you for helping to make this possible! I'm almost halfway to my fundraising goal. Please continue to share my campaign to help me get across the finish line!

Dear Family and Friends,

Thanks to your help so far at http://www.gofundme.com/lisacohen, we’ve been able to start building out the second phase of the Rockstar Women With MS website, including Resources pages. We hope to have this phase completed by the end of April. There’s still a LOT to do, so I’m asking for your help to get across the finish line. We’re about one-third of the way to our fundraising goal.

The additional funds will go toward upgrading online capabilities, advancing outreach, and being able to offer online courses and additional support resources before the end of this year.

Continuing thanks to all of you who have donated and shared links to help support my start-up venture to empower women living with MS! If you haven’t done so already, please donate or share the link to spread the word, so that we can reach our fundraising goal! The fundraising link is: http://www.gofundme.com/lisacohen

Thank you all again for your contributions and efforts.

With Love, Sincere Thanks and Gratitude,
Lisa

Dear Family and Friends,

Thanks to you, we’re almost one-third of the way to our fundraising goal! With your help at http://www.gofundme.com/lisacohen , we’ve been able to get the starter website up ( www.rockstarwomenwithms.com) and begin reaching women living with MS. Many of them have already downloaded their free copies of my Amazon #1 Bestseller book “Overcome The BS of MS: A 3-Step Plan For Women Living With Multiple Sclerosis,” and they’ve also begun participating in the free support group. I’m currently finalizing a free email course to offer in September.

The additional money I’d like to raise will go toward upgrading online capabilities, advancing outreach, and being able to offer online courses before the end of this year.

Continuing thanks to all of you who have donated and shared links to help support my start-up venture to empower women living with MS! There’s still a lot to do, so I’m asking for your help with donations and shares if you haven’t done so already. Please help to spread the word, so that we can reach our fundraising goal! The fundraising link is: http://www.gofundme.com/lisacohen

Thank you all again for your contributions and efforts.

With Love, Sincere Thanks and Gratitude,
Lisa

Dear Family and Friends,

Continuing thanks to all of you who have donated and shared links to help support my venture to empower women living with MS. A LOT has happened in the past couple of months. I’ve changed the name of my venture from Star Player Coaching to Rockstar Women With MS, but the all-important mission is still the same. My website is now live at rockstarwomenwithms.com. I also released my book “Overcome The BS of MS: A 3-Step Plan For Women Living With Multiple Sclerosis,” which became an Amazon #1 Bestseller! Free downloads of the book are available to women living with MS on my website.

There’s still so much to do to truly get this venture off the ground properly, so I’m continuing to ask for your help with donations and shares if you haven’t done so already. Please help to spread the word!

Thank you all again for your contributions and efforts.

With Love, Sincere Thanks and Gratitude,
Lisa
