About HopeLives

Hi everyone. I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in July of 2002 by a great specialist in Charlotte, NC after seeing numerous doctors for many months poking and testing the theories that they felt to believe to be such as carpal tunnel and stroke. Eventually one specialist told me his honest, educated opinion of what he thought the possibilities would be and it was MS. Finally an answer came but still came with many emotions. Then in January 2003, I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer (stage 3). I went through about 11 months of multiple surgeries, chemotherapy, and radiation and proud to say that I am a cancer survivor.

I remarried a man in 2005 that knew about the cancer and the MS.  I believe in total honesty.  He was my rock when I was going through the cancer treatments back in 2003.

MS is hard but getting over a relapse is harder.
