I am in my 60’s and living with MS.  I still work every day as a contractor, have been married for 39 years and am the grandfather of 4.  I enjoy stained glass work and creating new ideas for two small businesses.  Looking to make my second million, I gave up on the first million!
I've been living with MS for 16 years, and volunteering for the MS Society for most of them. I'm married with 2 grown children and 6 granddaughters including triplets. I also use a power chair regularly.  Originally from Massachusetts, I've lived in New Jersey for many years.

Living with MS since 1990 (Diagnosed in 1995) I have "grown up" with the disease.  After 20 years with relatively minor effects from MS I am healthy and happy.  If you have just been diagnosed contact me.  I am a good example of the better side of MS.  I have experience with multiple MS medications, and symptom treatments.  This can be a scary diagnosis and I would be happy to speak with you. I am available by telephone or email.

It feels like I’ve had a lot of challenges my entire adult life. I’ve had a few “careers”; from business to law to education.  I’ve also had the good fortune to live in a variety of places; from New York City to Philadelphia to Boston to Franconia, NH.  But there’s always been one constant: Physical activity…and when I was diagnosed in 1999 I accepted this “additional challenge.”  As my symptoms have remained mostly sensory...

If you want advice on travel or mobility aids, positive attitude, or just to express your concerns and get support, please feel welcome to contact me.  I...

I am a female in my 20's.  I do not have MS myself, but I help my Mom who has Primary Progressive MS.  My Mom was diagnosed in 1994 and now gets around with the help of her power chair.  I recently graduated from college and hope to someday go back to graduate school.  I really enjoy anything pertaining to music and the outdoors.  I would probably be most helpful to anyone who needs some support and a good listening ear.  I am available by email only...

Married 28 years, my husband was diagnosed with MS 16 years ago.  The challenges of being a committed spouse, positive role model for my daughters and working as a full-time professional can be daunting! Born and raised in Wisconsin, I've resided in Colorado for 30 years. Swimming and hiking sweeten my free time. My family is in-between cats, and we look forward to meeting our next feline.
