Mission Stadiums for Multiple Sclerosis

Real MS Stories.

“My outlook for my future is wonderful. I feel like as long as I have the support of my loved ones, I can get through anything. Looking back, I feel like I learned so much after my diagnosis. You need to like and trust your doctor, you should not go to a support group until you are ready, everyone’s version of MS is different (like your fingerprint), try to always stay positive, always try to keep moving, and take help when you need it. Letting people help you takes courage.”
