John explains that when the MS symptoms he was experiencing began to affect his everyday life, he had to take action. A lack of energy and not wanting to do the things he normally enjoyed was getting him down, so he tried a new drug therapy.

The new therapy worked well for John and gave him a new lease on life. After not being able to run for more than eight years, he was finally able to run around the backyard with his 7-year-old son. He now has more zest and energy and is enjoying life again.

John may have MS, but first and foremost he is a father, a husband, a brother, a friend and a consultant.
