I recently took part in an MS clinical trial (sponsored by the NIH) that was intense and risky, but potentially disease altering--it could change how MS is treated. It is my understanding that all 23 people participating in the Phase II study, all with “aggressive” MS, have had zero disease progression to date. I made a powerful video of the whole procedure. My goal: that cutting-edge research continues to get funded and that my fellow MSers come away with a renewed sense of hope.
The video was first shown at a National MS Society BikeMS event earlier this year. For those interested, you can also track my progress in detail at ActiveMSers.org, the nonprofit I established to inspire people with the disease to stay active physically, socially, and intellectually. Be active, stay fit, and keep exploring!
