Health knowledge made personal
Hi, my name is Marc, but in some circles I'm better known as the "Wheelchair Kamikaze". I was first diagnosed with primary progressive MS in 2003, and my disease has progressed to the point where I rely on a wheelchair for most of my mobility. Before getting sick, I worked in the television and video industry, at various times as a video editor, writer, and producer. At the time my MS necessitated my going out on disability, I was the director of DVD production at one of the major music and video production centers here in New York City.
I like to drive my wheelchair fast (thus, the moniker Wheelchair Kamikaze), and I've rigged a camera to my wheelchair that allows me to take still photos and videos despite my increasing disability. The videos have been met with much approval, which prompted me to start my blog earlier this year.
I'm honored that Wellsphere has chosen my blog to be included in their website. I hope all who visit find valuable and thought-provoking information, and also some measure of enjoyment from the included photos and video.
