Join My Bike MS Team

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

Fred Forsley here. You might know me as the co-founder and president of Shipyard Brewing Company. What you might not know is, I’m someone who has been affected by the disease multiple sclerosis. I grew up watching my mother live with MS and let me tell you, she NEVER let it hold her back. Agnes Forsley was a dynamic, kind, giving person. She was a wife, mother of five, and even ran a boarding house for military veterans.

She never let MS define her.

Neither does my brother Richard, who was diagnosed with the disease about 30 years ago.
