Dear Santa, please send a cure for Multiple Sclerosis

The other night we watched a TV commercial for some speech software as a young woman gushed on about how it changed her life as she could now type while driving, walking, etc. just by talking.

The young spokesperson had no noticeable disabilities except lack of time in her exciting life to type.

I doubt she was even born by the dawn of such speech technology for people with disabilities. From Microsoft to Verizon those early geeks could not have been more patient if not even fascinated with Patti’s Multiple Sclerosis speech that absolutely baffled the earliest software.

Try as they may the spawn of Gates and Jobs just never have kept the promises of Hanna-Barbera, or Gene Roddenberry when it comes to the technology we all were ‘promised’ in the future.  Where are our robot maids or aerocars of the Jetsons?  I still step outside once a day, open my flip phone and when no one is looking whisper "Beam me up, Scotty" … but I’ve never been transported.

Instead we are inundated by gadgets while not a single disease has been cured since polio in the mid 1950's. 

Dear Santa,
     Please bring a cure for Multiple Sclerosis for Christmas. My wife’s physical and cognitive progression only increases and now I have lung cancer. We have never asked before in 23 Christmases living with MS, either we were too busy being parents or praying for someone else. We are running out of time. Time is neither our friend nor that of any family living with MS
Big Pharma does not want to cure anything, time is profit to them. 

Earlier this year the bad elves at NASA ‘punked’ Mars by spending a zillion dollars to send a state of the art computer/lawnmower. Maybe you could simply swing by and pick it up. Put it under someone’s tree to start working on a cure for MS.

Speaking of those bad elves at NASA Santa, whatever happened to jet packs? I saw James Bond and Will Robinson using them in the 60’s.

I know you can’t grant every wish, but if you can’t send a cure for MS for this Christmas could you find two jet packs for us. Hovering around together would be so cool compared to the over 5,000 miles (8,000 kilometers) of push and rolls through the decades.

Thank you and "God Bless Us, Everyone"
