SAMPLE PERSONAL STORY:
I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 1993. I am no longer able to work or drive. I use a wheelchair and need assistance with my daily activities. I am blessed to have a wonderful wife who is my sole caregiver. In addition to her work as a family caregiver, my wife is employed full time.
I am actively involved with the National Multiple Sclerosis Society as an advocate, peer counselor and self-help group leader. I have learned to live my life to the fullest in spite of MS, to be able-hearted even though I am no longer able-bodied, and that there is nothing more valuable in life than relationships. I ask you to support Respite Care and family friendly workplace policies for family caregivers in Texas.
Thank you...Mike Fagan, Houston, Texas
