"Ritje declared October 3 as World Multiple System Atrophy Day in 2010 and has worked tirelessly to promote this. Because of Ritje we all light candles at 8pm so the unbroken chain of light travels around the world hour by hour. Collectively we count miles walked and attempt to circle the globe. All to symbolize our unity in the fight against MSA". — Pam

I Have a Dream ... find a Cure for MSA; the promise I made to my beloved JiePie. … When JiePie sensed that time was no longer on his side … he said Ritje .... I got a mission for you … you need to fight our fight … against the disease MSA. . Multiple System Atrophy, … his disease …he needed me to continue and contribute so that a cure can be found. I made him that promise … a hard promise. But I feel that he is somehow still here. I feel his support, his presence. In moments of despair I feel he is like a pat on my shoulder, saying “ don’t give up, you are doing a great job”, World MSA Day - JiePie Award for MSA Research - Miracles for MSA - Walk around the World for MSA
