I write and produce a series of videos on YouTube that chronicles my experience with multiple sclerosis (I was diagnosed in 1998)and the MS drug, Tysabri.




Julie and I are returning to Boston in March of next year for the annual Biogen Patient Advocate conference. We will be staying, once again, at the Intercontinental Hotel.

Love this picture from Lake Rathbun for our 6th anniversary.
