Welsh High School graduate Katherine Hensgens says there have been times that MS has taken away the things she has grown to love. Her balance issues kept her from playing tennis, but Katherine stayed busy with other activities such as Student Council and Library Club. Katherine’s life has changed, but now she is ready to take on anything MS puts in her way. “Yes, multiple sclerosis has set limitations physically, but I have matured greatly, grown more responsible, and I have become a self-efficient, independent human being,” Katherine says. With this newfound strength, Katherine plans to attend the University of Louisiana at Lafayette to obtain her Bachelor’s Degree in dental hygiene.
