She said “I’d like to be able to get up and walk, even run again, but I don’t concentrate on things I can’t do. I do what I can do.”
4. Michelle Obama
The only person on the list who does not to have MS herself, Michelle’s father was diagnosed with MS in his thirties. Michelle said: “My Dad was our rock. Although he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his early thirties, he was our provider, our champion, our hero. But as he got sicker, it got harder for him to walk, it took him longer to get dressed in the morning. But if he was in pain, he never let on. He never stopped smiling and laughing — even while struggling to button his shirt, even while using two canes to get himself across the room to give my Mom a kiss. He just woke up a little earlier, and worked a little harder.”
