Michael first got MS in 2004, but after an attack in 2009, his walking ability has been on a slow decline. He started using a cane in 2016, two canes in 2018, and a rollator in 2020. The rollator was hard to accept at first, but he needed something sturdier and searched for “cool rollators” and came across our Carbon Ultralight. It helped, in his words, an “image-conscious 33-year-old”.
During Michael’s journey, he has been on five different DMTs and explored and implemented diet changes, exercises, and alternative therapies. He explains that each element has had pros and cons (and varying degrees of effectiveness), but that he overall remains thankful for the opportunities and hopeful for better days!
Talking about better days, during MS Awareness Month 2022, Michael got married to his wife, Victoria! He describes her as “an amazing person with a huge heart and a big smile, that inspires me every day”. Even though Michael is now mainly using a wheelchair, he has used his rollator to stand tall and meet her by the altar.
