Share Your Story About MS

Here's the place to Share Your Story with us. One of the things I love most about people with MS, is their willingness to share. I have always loved reading their personal stories. About their challenges and triumphs. About their fears and frustrations. About their hopes and joys.

You can find their stories here. If you'd like to skip this dialog, scroll down to the bottom of this page to read them. We'll soon be putting these in book form so that you can read them on your ereaders or tablets. 

At each turn inspiration abounds. We feel very honored to have a place where you can tell your stories in your own words and share them with others like yourself. With those who will benefit most from them. With those who can relate to everything you're going through because they've been there already or will be soon.

To everyone who has taken the time to share already, we wish to thank you. And for those who will soon share, we thank you in advance. Thanks so much for sharing and we look forward to and appreciate many more of your stories.
