Thank you for my cooling vest!


@MSAA, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for sending out my cooling vest! It came very quickly (only a few days) after I filled out the application. I put everything in the freezer overnight, and tried it out the next day when I took my dog out. It was 96° out, but I was able to stay comfortable and it was wonderful! I love that it has a separate piece to go around my neck. It's so kind of this organization to offer a free cooling vest to those with an MS diagnosis. You guys ROCK! 😃😎

Absolutely, always careful of that. Thank God we have a very large fenced back yard she uses during the sunny part of the day. We always check the cement temperature of the sidewalk with our hands if we're gonna walk her in the evening. Thanks for the reminder on behalf of all the furbabies. 😊🐶

Always have to check cement with your hand before walking your furbabies because they can get hurt VERY bad from hot cement/asphalt.

Wow! The msaa sent you a cooling vest?

I’ve been told I don’t qualify.

I hope it helps you very much.

I’m very happy someone is benefiting from these cooling vests.

Please let us know how this helps.

good luck to you and enjoy the rest of the summer!

Sorry to hear that. They did ask about income on the application so maybe that was it? I only receive disability. Hope you enjoy the rest of the summer too, but I know us MS'ers are looking forward to the Fall, right? 😄 Heat, heat go away!
