The Presidential Campaign and MS

Both candidates in the race to be our next president have intimate connections with multiple sclerosis. Mitt Romney's wife, Ann was diagnosed with MS in the mid-90's and served on the board of a National MS Society chapter in Massachusetts. Barack Obama's father-in-law also lived with MS, and his wife Michelle has talked publicly about the impact that had on her life.

Now, we get a campaign video talking about the impact that MS had on the Romney family. Check it out here:

And for some good perspectives within the MS community on the overall impact of the experiences, visit our friend Trevis Gleason's blog post on this topic.
