Multiple Sclerosis and Children
I originally created the Multiple Sclerosis section of my website as a tribute to my father and my grandmother, both of whom died as an indirect result of the illness.
However, my life has been touched since that time by others with MS.
MS rarely affects those less than 15. But if you ever spend time with a child with MS, the fact that it is rare at that age will matter not at all.
And while MS in children is rarely the direct cause of death, if you ever witness a child with MS take her last breath as a result of complications or as an indirect result of the condition (e.g., an accident induced because of MS), you will be touched in a way that will permeate your being.
In addition to the memory of my father and grandmother, I offer the MS section of my website to all children with MS, including those I do not know, and particularly to those who have passed much too early because of the disease.
Out of respect to their families I do not disclose names or other specifics, nor do I focus either on the children or on the tragedy itself. Rather I hope that in some small way this section of my site, not only honors them and helps the families to remember them, but also helps others to understand this disease.

This topic is just a part of my overall website. After you check out this topic, you might like to explore the rest of my site and get to know me better. I recommend that you start with my "Home" Page, then go to the "Front Door", then to "Stuff About Me" and finally, just explore the site. The buttons on the left will take you there.
Many webmasters only want people to link to the "primary" page of a website. I have a different view.
Because of the importance of Multiple Sclerosis to me I actually encourage other Multiple Sclerosis sites to link directly to my Multiple Sclerosis pages. Click here to find out my special requests for linking to my Multiple Sclerosis pages.
