Multiple Sclerosis: When M.S. is Your Constant Companion
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that attacks the Central Nervous System, thereby complicating the functions of the body. The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation estimates that more than 400,000 people in the United States and about 2.5 million people around the world have MS. About 200 new cases are diagnosed each week in the United States. In this interview, which is part of our Warrior Women series, you’ll hear Sherry Bitler describe what it was like to hear her diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, and how it changed her life. Listeners with a similar diagnosis will be encouraged by the way Sherry has confronted this disease and learned how to continue to invest her life in the lives of others, even though she is sometimes physically limited. This conversation will also help “healthy” people better understand how such a diagnosis can affect everyday life, and how they can come alongside of someone whose constant companion is Multiple Sclerosis.
