Meet Other Activists

Meet MS activists from all over the country. Learn how they got involved, what they’re passionate about and how they drive change.


MS activists are the voice of people living with MS nationwide. Many are individuals who live with MS; some are friends, colleagues and family members. All MS activists recognize their passion and power to move us closer to a world free of MS. Get to know how some MS activists got involved and what they’re passionate about—below. And be sure you’re a part of the MS Activist Network too! 

  • Bob Picone: Bob Picone’s volunteer activities at the chapter led him to chair the Maine Government Relations Committee (GRC). Under his leadership the Maine GRC was at the forefront of the enactment of legislation to stem the tide of rising prescription drug costs.
  • Ken Jones: “To me, advocacy on behalf of the MS Society has always been like the warp or weft of a fabric. That is, it is an integral part of all of the organization. We are all advocates, whether or not it's part of our title, in our job description or something to which we even give a conscious thought. What the MS Society is or what it is perceived as being or what influence it has is up to each and every one of us. We are all advocates.”  
  • Joann D'Amico Stone: Can one person open the doors for all people with disabilities? Many doors at public entrances are challenging if not impossible for some individuals to open independently. Now Massachusetts is poised to open new doors for all of its citizens—-finally! Joann D'Amico Stone has influenced our public officials and successfully advocated to ensure accessibility in public buildings through out our communities in Massachusetts!
