Celebrities w/ MS

I have been looking up celebrities with MS and was able to find, Jaquelin DuPre, Richard Pryor, and Terri Garr. Jaquelin was a very long time ago, but Richard Pryor had only been Dx w/ MS for 15-19 years when he died. Was it the MS or was it his freebasing cocaine habit?

Well, I'm back from my two week hospital adventure, which included ten days of Solumedrol and five days of physical and occupational therapy. I started off in a local hospital, where they started the IV, and then transfered to the Helen Hayes Rehab Hospital in Rockland County, New York.

The effect has been remarkable. I was quite skeptical that the steroids would have much effect, as their reputation with PPMS is poor, but my improvement ...

Psychiatric Conditions Other Than Depression Common in Multiple Sclerosis Patients: Presented at ENS
