I am a Patient Advocate for the drug company, Biogen, which makes
the MS drug Tysabri. As a Patient Advocate I travel across the
country speaking at MS seminars about my experience with the disease
I write and produce a series of videos on YouTube that chronicles
my experience with multiple sclerosis and the drug Tysabri.
A comic 'Storyboard" from my laterst YouTube video.
I started having walking difficulties less than a year after I was
diagnosed in 1998. Eventually I would be using a wheelchair for four
years before Tysabri came on the market.
I took part in a video shoot about patient advocacy at
the BIOGEN Headquarters in Boston. You can see part of it
here or click the "Fighter's forum" to view it.
