First e-Newsletter of 2009

Today IS - JANUARY 1, 2009

* Welcome to our first edition of 2009... and wishes for a Healthy New Year.
* Whether for our newsletter, website, blog or organization, your comments and suggestions are always being sought to benefit all affected and effected by Multiple Sclerosis. "Change" can be a good thing. Please don't be shy and offer what you may have been withholding..

* Our e-Newsletters do not just contain MS information and personal views from writers with MS .
* Sometimes we also offer humor &/or misc. tips.
* Eventually, I would like to have our own message boards for both the patients and another for the caregivers. This would enable the user of the boards to communicate with others from around the world.. After all, with the MS Views e-Newsletter and our website being viewed in as many (int he last two months) as 34 countries, you would be surprised to learn how your situation is similar to others, regardless on the logistics.

In this first edition, we share with our thousands of readers:
topics concerning the opening of a new year, misc ms news,
this weeks postings and other misc information.

A Recent Comments left on the December 19th Tysabri Posting
Dear Stuart.I am happy for you that Rebif is working for you. Here in S.A. Tysabri is not ever mentioned. I have been having chemo treatment (novantrone) since July 2006 every 3 months.The scans show that this treatment is definately helping me. Unfortunately it is causing damage to my insides (i.e. my blood cells are all together, liver damage).I have been to see somebody who has put me onto some stuff to try rectify the damages caused by the chemo. Will be going to see her again 1 week after I have my next chemo. It wil be very interesting to see what damage is has caused.Keep well. Best wishes to you & your family for 2009. Kind regards Mary R.S.A.

Mary,If you want to know more about Tysabri, just click the link found on my blog or from my website.If the Novantrone is destroying your insides, than you should not be using this medication.. Tell your doctor to stop it and ask them to consider Tysabri.. IT IS so Much safer to use.....If you have any other questions for me, write directly to my email address or leave another posting here...Best Wishes for the coming Year.Sincerely,Stuart Schlossman -December 31, 2008 9:53 AM
