Life Interrupted: Interview with Author Chris Tatevosian

What happens when life is interrupted by chronic illness or disability?  Illness affects not only the individual but also their loved ones, and this often puts stress on one's relationship.

Chris Tatevosian is a man living with multiple sclerosis, a man whose illness killed a relationship, and a man who found love again.  After writing his book, Life Interrupted, It's Not All About Me, Chris's purpose in life has become a ministry providing awareness and support for individuals to deal more positively with the stresses illness brings.
