want them to remember is
that they will always have
Marcia there with them."

"The nurses at MS LifeLines have been there for me."
I am a violinist. I am also hardheaded and difficult. When I was diagnosed with relapsing MS, I was determined not to let MS stand in the way of my life. Yes, my journey with MS has been filled with lots of challenges, big and small. But I couldn't let it stand in the way of my passion for music.
Now I'm a teacher. I have over 50 students in grades K through 8. I love my music and students—no matter how terrifying their violin playing may be!
Sometimes with MS, there are things that come up. The nurses at MS LifeLines have been there for me. They know me now when I call, 'cause I've called so many times! I'd say 20 times or more. And every time, they're so patient. They never tell me, "enough is enough."
They're wonderful. They say, "Okay, we're going to do what we have to do, we'll take care of it." Every month or so they call back to find out how I'm doing, see how I'm feeling, and make sure I can ask anything I need to ask. There's so much understanding; they really are dedicated to helping.
