Sample Personal Story:
I was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting MS in 2003 when I was only 25 years old. It has been a long, difficult journey. The most challenging thing for me has been maintaining my drug therapy. Like many others with MS, it took my doctors a long time to identify my illness. As a result, I lost my job and my health insurance. By the time I was officially diagnosed, I had been hospitalized 3 times in 3 months with more than $60,000 in medical bills. I couldn’t work because I was so sick. I was a single mother with household bills that exceeded my monthly unemployment check. I couldn’t dream of how I was going to afford my MS treatment. What was I to do?! This is why the reducing the high cost of prescription drugs is so important to me.
