I am a Patient Advocate for Biogen/IDEC, the company that makes
Tysabri. I participate in and/or speak at various MS events
throughout the Midwest. I became a Patient Advocate four years after
starting Tysabri in November of 2006.
Like the disease itself, the drugs for MS will affect everyone
differently. Yes, I started walking one day after my 3rd infusion of
Tysabri, but that doesn't mean everyone will notice a change that
quickly. Many have, but others have not.

Stolen, liberally, from a quote on faith by Thomas Aquinas;
For those who don't know: Yes, I believe
CCSVI is a joke
and a scam.
Just like the issue of medical marijuana, there is no CLINICAL proof
that the Liberation procedure (or pot) is helping anyone with MS, or that
CCSVI is even a condition at all.

I am taking the drug "TYSABRI" for my MS and have been on it since
November of 2006. I get an IV infusion once every 28 days.
*September 2014, I now have had more than 100 infusions.
