PAST LIFE and my Story of MS

by Shana Lamphere
(Hernando, FL USA)

My name is Shana. I was once a Physical Therapist Assistance, before my diagnosis of MS. I began searching for support groups in my area. However, they were very depressing to say the least.

I got mad at the way things were done here in my county so I decided to CHANGE things. So I began my own support group, its called FAMS- Families Against Multiple Sclerosis.

I was diagnosed in 2007 and started my meetings in the beginning of 2008. I am now 40 years old living with some difficult symptoms of MS. But I do not let that bring me down. I am a very positive person that likes to help others when I can.

I volunteer for the Mid-Florida National Multiple Sclerosis Society. If anyone is looking for resources that may be hard to find, let me know. I will see what I can come up with.

I enjoy researching information for myself and others. Any questions are open for discussion with me. I love talking and getting to know others with and without MS. I hope you enjoy my story.

Thank you so much,

Hi Shana,

Just wanted to say congratulations and also commend you on taking things into your own hands. Sometimes that's what it takes to get what you want - especially when you know others will ultimately benefit as well.

If you help others to get what they want, you also succeed. Good luck with the continued success of your support group. It sounds like and I'm sure it is, a big hit.
