New Website to Review Disabled Accessibility

Hi:

I'm Nancy (diagnosed RRMS in 2008). After a series of relapses became dependent on a walker and scooter.

I recently launched a new site that enables contributors to review disabled accessibility of the places they go.

http://www.disabledonthego.com

Please come, join the community and post reviews. Your participation would help everyone in the MS community who uses mobility assistance aids (and other disabled persons as well)!
