A Special Note If You Jumped Into My Site
Directly to This Page

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.


If You Would Like to Link to My Multiple Sclerosis Pages

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.
