Trailblazing for MS: A Journey to Make A Difference

Hey there! My name is Jennifer, and as one of the nearly 1 million people in the US living with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), I’m on a mission. This debilitating autoimmune disease affects the central nervous system- brain, spinal cord, optic nerve- and can wreak havoc on our lives. That’s why I founded Fearsome and why, in 2023, I hiked the entire Appalachian Trail (AT) to raise funds and awareness for MS.

Fearsome is more than a nonprofit; we are a community that celebrates the indomitable spirit within everyone. We believe in the restorative power of nature and passionately embrace the belief that each of us can deal with whatever challenges life throws at us because all of us are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Our mission is to empower people living with chronic, degenerative diseases stay as mobile and independent as possible for as long as possible.

We will do this by providing dedicated support in areas that include accessibility, exercise, mobility aids, service dogs, and adaptive driving modifications so they can navigate their path with resilience, dignity, and an unwavering belief in their own fearsome potential.

And we need your help! Follow and share our ongoing adventures and please consider donating. Thank you.

“You get this far into your hike and you don’t want anything to knock you off the trail,” she said. “You know, bridges are washed out. Roads are washed out …”
