Kathy Chester, Multiple Sclerosis
How would you explain Multiple Sclerosis to a child?
Multiple sclerosis or MS is a disease that attacks the immune system (the part of the body that protects us from things like colds and the flu). MS also attacks the nerve system in our bodies and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body.
What would you want the world to know about Multiple Sclerosis?
Every person that has Multiple Sclerosis is affected differently. Some people have more severe cases than others. So even when it may not look like we have an illness or disease, MS could be quite be wreaking havoc with our body and mind.
What does it feel like to live with Multiple Sclerosis?
Everyday you will have an unwanted visitor in your life and they constantly bring different problems to you. Some days the problems are huge and other days not so bad. It is the not knowing that can be unsettling.
What brings you joy?
Playing with my Golden Retriever - Sophia and seeing my clients get stronger while exercising and moving while participating in my MS and Autoimmune Fitness Program called DMAT - Disrupt Move and Transform.
