NEW BOOK PORTRAYS REAL PEOPLE WITH MS
In a series of essays and photographs, renowned San Francisco-based photographer Amelia Davis brings the reality of life with MS to readers with her new book, My Story: A Photographic Essay of Life With Multiple Sclerosis.
The book is comprised of 32 stories of women, men and children, aged seventeen to seventy, living with MS. The essays and accompanying photographs that fill the pages of this book vividly portray individuals with MS. Some need no mobility aid, while others use canes, wheelchairs or electric scooters. Read about various treatments and therapies, alternative coping methods, hobbies, creative outlets, and community activism. Also included are accompanying stories written by spouses, children and other loved ones, depicting the ups and downs of living and loving someone with MS.
Diagnosed with MS in 1998 at the age of 29, Davis turned her grief into advocacy once before by working on a book of photographs of breast cancer survivors, called The First Look.
