The Wheelchair Kamikaze has honed his fine writing and information skills over the past several years on message boards, keeping his peers abreast of current information and interpreting the technical and scientific information for those less able to understand the nuances of MS research and treatment.
He continues to do so now in his blog, covering research and treatment. He takes us through his own health care journey and extrapolates it to the experience of many -- making it understandable and usable in our own lives.
When he is commenting on the vagaries of dealing with MS, navigating NYC in a power wheelchair (watch out for those missing curbcuts!), or showing us the beauty of the City with his videos and still photography, we are privileged to glimpse the life of a man dealing with a major health issue yet finding ways to express himself as an individual, with touching moments and wry humor.
The website itself has a fine, clear layout with interesting touches of whimsy to amuse and attract the eye.
The Wheelchair Kamikaze is a fine and knowledgeable read, the author combines dry wit with technical expertise on his subject: himself, his disease, the medical system, research, and he serves his peers well as a database and sounding board for what is happening or about to happen in the Multiple Sclerosis community of patients, researchers and physicians.
His blog truly deserves your award.
