Ginny Townsend – Montgomery, AL

Before I was a wife, mother, grandmother; before I had MS, I was ME! It took a decade for a diagnosis! What a relief to finally know!

In between exacerbations, I ignored “MS”. Maybe it would ignore me! Then 9-11 happened. On 9-12, I had a major exacerbation. I became permanently disabled. At first I was in a wheelchair. Now I use a cane and walker. I was bored so I began painting on mayonnaise jars! I also paint on canvas.

MS is what I have, not who I am! Every grandchild I hug, every book I read, every walk I take, every picture I paint, ever article I write, is a victory over MS. I can’t predict the future and sometimes I feel scared. But I have faith in God and the love of my family and pets!
