This Is MS Multiple Sclerosis Community: Knowledge & Support
Welcome to the world's leading forum on Multiple Sclerosis research, support, and knowledge. For over 10 years, This is MS has provided an unbiased community dedicated to Multiple Sclerosis patients, caregivers, and affected loved ones.
I get ccsvi testing at the Hubbard Foundation next week in San Diego and will keep you posted regarding results.
This week I played in the WSOP Main event in Las Vegas and finished 85th out of over 7000 participants for $80,000. I also got a sponsorship deal while going deep in the event to bring my week to $100,000. The coolest part of this is that I was at the ESPN main feature table for 2 hours on day 5 and 5 hours on day 6. This means that I got some attention because of my disability while finishing deep in the tourney and got to help elevate MS awareness for us all because in addition to the hands I played that will be on TV, ESPN did a full length interview with me which should air. I did 2 magazine interviews and was involved in 4 tv interviews-most by ESPN. Here is the link to an article that came out yesterday; http://online.casinocity.com/article/ws ... son-100602 Hopefully I return in a year using a cane

FYI if you missed episodes 19 and 20 of the WSOP tonight, they should rerun. Good to see you on there Gary. Too bad about those two folded flushes and the suckouts, but you played correctly. All about longevity at that point, every seat counts! Great profile anyways. Nice job.
