MS - The term multiple sclerosis refers to the distinctive areas of scar tissue (sclerosis or plaques) that are visible in the white matter of people who have MS. Plaques can be as small as a pinhead or as large as the size of a golf ball. Doctors can see these areas by examining the brain and spinal cord using a type of brain scan called magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).
"I was diagnosed with MS in 2010, after years of wondering what was going on inside my body. Once I got that answer, it was bittersweet. I tried to deny everything, but realized I had to face it head on." You can read more of Emily's story by clicking on the image
