My name is Christopher. My Mom lived with the symptoms of ms, that significantly affected her everyday life, for 25 years. I was nine years old when my family and I started to notice symptoms, although my Mom wasn't diagnosed until six years later. Through my Mom's illness I learned quite a lot about ms, I learned even more about true unyielding strength and love with my family and how important life is. I am here to help those newly diagnosed and those who have lived with ms for many years. If I can't help, directly, with a specific answer, offer my support to all who live with ms. I know how it feels for the families who fight this illness every day and if all I can do is be here as someone who cares and listens, I am.
