Cindy Locke, 52, Multiple Sclerosis

How would you explain having Multiple Sclerosis? 

I am a Mommy to Carina, who is fourteen years old, and Joshua, who is twelve years old. Carina and Joshua have grown up with a Mommy that is unable to do things most Mommies can do because of Multiple Sclerosis. It makes my body very tired and sometimes unable to go to the park or do other fun things with them, no matter how much I want to have fun with them.

What would you want the world to know about Multiple Sclerosis?

There is so much I want the world to know, but I don’t think you want me to write a book here! I will start with what I think is one of the most important to those of us with this disease, the fact that MS is an invisible illness. Even though on the outside, I may look like I’m not sick, on the inside, I am very sick. Some chronic illnesses are known as “invisible illnesses,” so sometimes you might meet a person and never know they are sick.  

What does it feel like to live with Multiple Sclerosis

Living with MS is different every day. One day I have the energy to do a ton, and the next, I may not. That makes it hard to plan things such as vacations, Birthday parties, and even going out to dinner. I’m hoping for a cure and will do everything I can to raise awareness for MS. The more people like you who know about MS, the closer we are to a cure.

What brings you joy?

Spending time with my children, family and my fur babies, Momo, Foxey, and Sivie.
