Sharing MS in the Community

Last year I talked about why I write about health.  Here is an excerpt of what I said....
"I consider myself a patient advocate and somewhat of an educator.  I wish to see the MS blogging community remain an active and vibrant force on the internet.  I feel that it’s important to promote other people’s material and websites, so I continue to do so.

I write about my health which encourages others to do the same.  Together we help to spread awareness and understanding of what it takes to live with illness.  We provide a resource for those who are searching for answers to questions or validation of their own experiences.  Together we are powerful."
I continue to believe that together we are powerful.  Often I am inspired by others.  Four of my fellow MS bloggers have contributed to a recent video project at the new MS Community Education Sharing Hub, sponsored by Novartis (makers of Gilenya) and produced by wegohealth.  Their video is great!  As soon as the Sharing Hub has been "shared" on Facebook or Twitter 100 times, the National MS Society will receive a $1000 donation from wegohealth.


  1. Hi and thanks for all you do.
    Love Gail

  2. Lisa, seeing your thoughts/feelings DID encourage me to do the same. I don't know if I would ever have gotten through some of my rough times if I hadn't gotten it out. It was more than just venting [though I did yell, scream and stamp my feet online] it was admitting to myself my feelings there there, were reality based and then . . letting it go. Thank you for all you do
