It’s not every day that you can say that you interviewed a professional athlete – let alone a 3x Stanley Cup winner – but, I did just that. Bryan Bickell, formerly of the NHL’s Chicago Blackhawks and the Carolina Hurricanes, was generous enough to share his story and experiences living with multiple sclerosis.
This interview was important to me on several levels – but most importantly, because Bryan Bickell, while a tremendously successful athlete, is still just a normal guy. He’s a 30-something year old dad, husband, and friend, who was just as scared as any of us when he learned the news of his diagnosis. But, instead of hiding behind closed doors, Bryan and his wife Amanda, are opening up and sharing their story, and how they’re helping others in a similar position. It’s no surprise why he’s been coined #BickellBrave Read more
I am excited to introduce you all to Beth Prystowsky, an inspirational MSer, mom and yogi who has created one of the top MS websites for research, information, and inspiration – Modern Day MS.
Modern Day MS is a valuable asset for anyone with MS. Although we’ve never met in person, I’ve followed Beth and Modern Day MS on Facebook religiously (you should too!) and am so appreciative to have found a positive source of inspiration about MS online. Her website includes key research, treatment options and even recommended neurologists so it’s a great place to search for more info (especially for those of you who are recently diagnosed!).
