Racing MSers

The other day I saw a list of celebrity MS speakers and was inspired by Robert Burgin who continued racing drag cars after diagnosis. Wow. A successful race car driver -- a career not usually associated with MS.

But maybe we should re-think limiting career choices just because of an MS diagnosis. My favorite upright* Garry found an article in Reader’s Digest about a young woman, Kelly Sutton. Kelly, diagnosed at a young 16, still followed her dream to become a NASCAR driver.

*upright – a person who stands and/or walks upright
