This is my journey from the very first symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis; 17 years of progressive disability, through the search for a cure to the angioplasty procedure for Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Venous Insufficiency that pulled me out of a wheelchair and into a second chance for life.There is no cure...but we have for the first time a chance for an enhanced quality of life.

Thanks to Shirley for reminding me about the Gilenya- PML connection. PML is an often fatal brain disease caused by Tysabri: a disease modifying drug to treat Multiple Sclerosis. Biogen's brain child was bad enough, then the Swiss company, Novartis felt the need to join the fiasco with a pill that will do the same thing.
