Meet Alexandria Ambassador Jim Taddei, diagnosed in the early 1980s
In what way has MS made the biggest impact on your life?
Historically, I have had an active lifestyle, so obviously MS physically impacted me.
Why did you decide to participate in Walk MS?
I was contacted to do so, and I want to create an awareness of and improve funding for MS programs.
What’s your favorite thing about Walk MS?
What is one thing you wish people could understand about MS?
How MS can have such impact on one’s life style and its demand on my spouse.
What makes your story with MS unique?
I was affected before recent drugs were developed, which slow the impact of MS, yet I have been working fulltime since I was originally diagnosed in the early 1980s.
