I was diagnosed with MS in March, 1997. It had taken five years to get to this diagnosis, and I was told I was lucky because doc had thought it was cancer of the spine all along.
I have been married for over 35 years to Roger, and we have two children, Emilie who is married with three of her own, and son, Michael.
I had gone back to college when my children were in Jr. High and hadn't been teaching too long when the symptoms showed themselves. I managed to get in nine years teaching and left this profession with such a heart filled with emptiness. I had been doing some presentations around the state and saw myself in this role along with the teaching itself.
