Madison Copot was diagnosed with MS about 9 years ago, just before turning 13. And when she received her diagnosis, Madison was also told that she was too young to be seen by an MS specialist. Today, Madison is a 21-year old woman, and if you want to hear what a real-life superhero sounds like, you won't want to miss my conversation with Madison.
While we're on the subject of superheroes, we'll also tell you about Darkhawk, who debuted last week as the first Marvel superhero whose alter-ego has been diagnosed with MS.
We're sharing the American Academy of Neurology's COVID-19 vaccine guidance. And we have a very specific message to share with anyone living with MS who is still on the fence about being vaccinated.
You'll learn about new NIH-funded research that may extend our understanding of how MS happens.
We'll also tell you about a clinical trial getting underway in the U.K. that's exploring whether Mavenclad can slow the worsening of hand and arm function in people with progressive MS.
And we'll share the line-up of no-cost CAN-DO MS virtual programs taking place throughout the month of September.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
