The presidential election is more than a year away, but the race for the nomination is in full force.
When Mitt Romney entered the race, he did us a favor. Ann Romney was diagnosed with MS nine years ago. Regardless of the voting results, Ann Romney benefits MS by increasing awareness. She explains to the press how she is handling the stress of the campaign. Read an article covering an interview here.
She has been through it before, though admittedly not on the same scale. Here is an interview when Mitt was governor-elect of Massachusetts, and Ann had just finished living through a political campagn.
Ann Romney is illustrating to the country that MS does not mean life is over. It is different and requires some accommodations now and again, but life goes on. FDR was the President as a disabled person. Surely, Ann Romney can be the First Lady as an MSer -- or at least the wife of a presidential candidate.
Thank you for reminding us that life goes on, even for the MSer.
