    It didn't say he left any to MS causes, but he realized that there are a lot of illnesses other than the one he had.

    www.iConquerMS.org announced today that we are now affiliated with the Italian MS Society for the next 5 years to develop a world wide data base of patient reported outcomes related to MS, therapies and medications. Amsterdam MS Society today is meeting with our CEO to also join this movement and report what it is that we, people living with MS, feel is most important for researchers and the Medical Community to know from people living with this. If you want to help, go to www.iConquerMS.org and sign up as a member (free). Fill out surveys every 6 months on how your mS is affecting you and we will develop a database to help people with MS, researchers and physicians know how to approach therapies and treatments. I have been doing this every 6 months for nearly 4 years now. We are trying to show trends.

    Another article states that he left some to the MS Bike Ride:
