Sam Greenberg

Founder and CEO

My name is Sam Greenberg and I am the Founder and CEO of MS4MS. I grew up in Guilford, CT, currently live in Annapolis, MD and am the youngest of five siblings. I went to college at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) where I received my degree in Interpersonal Communication back in 2012.

As my college baseball career came to a close, I took the leap and began this incredible non-profit organization in honor of my grandmother who suffered from MS for over 30 years. Through the help of so many people I was able to turn an idea into a reality and could not be more thankful for everyone who helped make this possible.

“MS4MS will positively change the lives of so many and more importantly, we hope to help find a cure for MS! Together, we are #spreadingORANGE!”

Tina Marchese

Multiple Sclerosis Warrior & MS4MS Lead Ambassador

My name is Tina Marchese and I am an official MS4MS Ambassador. I was diagnosed with Remitting-Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) in October 2016. My diagnosis stemmed from Optical Neuritis. What I thought would be a typical eye doctor appointment turned into the biggest fight of my life. I stepped into that emergency department at Johns Hopkins Hospital not knowing what was happening. Scared, worried and so many other emotions. That night neurology sent me for an MRI since the migraine medicine combination was not taking effect at all and I had lost vision in part of my right eye. That night is when I first heard the words RRMS. I could not believe this was happening to me and after a very long conversation with my nurse, this was my lemon in life. I was determined to crush that lemon. I have an amazing, strong group of family and friends that keep me strong and positive.

Since my diagnosis, I knew there was a place for me somewhere to be a voice for those suffering from MS and that is when I found MS4MS.

“I want my fellow MS warriors to know that they should never give up and always keep moving forward. The more we talk and Spread Orange the greater the impact we have on finding a cure for MS!”

Dario

Dario Pizzano

Professional Baseball Player & MS4MS Lead Baseball Ambassador

My name is Dario Pizzano and I am the MS4MS Lead Baseball Ambassador. I am honored to be a part of this organization and use the game I love to help spread awareness of Multiple Sclerosis and raise funds to ultimately help find a cure for MS.

This cause holds a special place in my heart as my mother, Tracie Pizzano, has been suffering from MS for over 20 years and this is the perfect opportunity to help support her by using my love for baseball. My two siblings and I are ready to join the fight against MS in support of all MS Warriors, but specifically for our mom. She has been there for us every step of the way and now it is our turn to be there for her.

“I am extremely excited about my new involvement with MS4MS and I look forward to one day saying my mom “had” MS!”

Julian

Julian Uccello

Professional Soccer Player, MS Warrior & Lead Soccer Ambassador

My name is Julian Uccello. I am an official Lead Soccer MS Warrior Ambassador for MS4MS. I was diagnosed in February 2011 with Multiple Sclerosis which made my professional soccer career in Europe come to an end. Since then, I have been always wanting to be a part of a special group of people that all have the same ideas and same goals in the MS industry. My main goal is to make sure we can raise as much money as possible to help find a cure for MS and give back to the MS community. One thing I have learned is that with MS there are so many unknowns, trials and so many different medications but without the strength from all of us with MS, it will only get worse. We all need to stay strong and keep fighting because MS will be beat.

“MS will be beaten, but it’s going to need everyone’s hunger and positive attitude to beat it!”

Garrett Owen

Executive Editor

My name is Garrett Owen and I am the Executive Editor for MS4MS. I grew up and currently live in Stratford, CT. An important aspect of my life is I have been living with a disability my entire life. I was born with Arthrogryposis, which is a muscle and joint disease, and recently have been diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a genetic disorder causing progressive muscle degeneration. Having been in a wheelchair since I was 10 years old, I have learned many valuable life lessons. This has given me a unique perspective that helps me get through each and every day with a positive attitude. I truly believe that the best way to make a positive impact on the world is to serve others that need help the most, which is why I chose to work for a great cause and an incredible organization. I went to college at Southern Connecticut State University (SCSU) where I received a degree in Journalism.

A few years after graduation, I worked on my book but I was still trying to find the right opportunity to focus my time and energy on given my new medical diagnosis. That is when I was asked to join this incredible non-profit organization as the executive editor. My mom has MS so this is a cause that is very important to me. I take this opportunity as a blessing and hope my work along with the work of many other wonderful people at MS4MS can help those who are fighting MS!
