CLAY WALKER DONATES TO MS RESEARCH

Clay Walker recently presented researchers at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston a $100,000 grant for the research of Multiple Sclerosis. The grant came from Clay's Band Against MS Foundation and supports groundbreaking neuroscience research for MS and similar disorders. This is Walker's second grant to UT Medical School, which is located in his hometown.

"When I was first diagnosed with MS back in '96, I was in my early 20's and I was like, 'This can be a pretty serious disease,' and I didn't know what was going to happen to me, I really didn't," Clay told X Radio Networks. "I have a strong faith in God, but, you know, who knows what God's plan is? And certainly we don't know His mind, so I didn't know what was gonna happen to me. I didn't know how to talk about it. I didn't live in fear, because once I was diagnosed with MS, I prayed very diligently and very hard and just very faithfully, and I truly felt like I was going to be okay, no matter what."
