Leah’s Story

Meet Leah, a single mother, Provincetown resident, and preschool teacher in Wellfleet who gets support from us to cope with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Leah discovered HOW when she drove by our Provincetown office on Conwell Street after moving into the neighborhood. She then met with HOW Client Services Manager Ella. “I didn’t have any anxiety about reaching out. I felt welcomed — no judgment, just curiosity and empathy,” Leah said.

Leah uses her HOW stipend for yoga classes. “I do some yoga at home, but it makes a difference to be able to have a good yoga teacher and to go to a studio to practice — my body really responds,” she said.

Raising her children, Milo and Nora, on her own means that Leah’s budget “… allows for only a few extras, so HOW’s stipend program helps me manage my MS by staying on track with my Three Trinities: Exercise, Nutrition, and Sleep.”

Leah’s son Milo and his classmates organized a bake sale at their school in Provincetown and donated the proceeds to HOW. Please join Milo by making your best gift. Matching funds will double the power of your generosity. Thanks again!
