Information from an MS Patient:
Hello Stuart,
I just wanted to thank you for sending out these newsletters, which are an invaluable resource for very important MS information. You're really doing a great service to the MS community.
I've got a couple of links I thought you might like to post.
The first is of a video I made of a wheelchair excursion through the upper West side of Manhattan. It seems to be getting a very nice response, and fellow MSer's are telling me that it's not only entertaining but has helped them in their own struggles to come to grips with the increasing disabilities they face. I hope you'll include it in your newsletter. If the response continues to be good, I hope to be posting more of these videos in the future...
I also came across a very interesting website that I think has a tremendous potential to be a very valuable resource for the worldwide MS community. It's a place were you can post info, both positive and negative, about MS neurologists you've had experiences with. Of course, you can also read what others have posted about a neuro you might be considering seeing.
It would be great if this could become a comprehensive database that could help MSer's weed through some of the terrible doctors out there, and find the great ones. New patients especially could benefit from the experiences of those of us that have been "around the block a few times", and old hands might find direction to doctors who could give a valuable second opinion... -
I hope you find these links suitable for inclusion in your newsletter, and maybe even worthy of appearing in your blog.
Keep up the great work, it's very much appreciated.
Marc Stecker
