Anthony's Story

Faces of MS

Meet 8 year old Anthony. Anthony was diagnosed with MS when he was just 4 years old. He woke up one day without being able to hold his balance, and the doctor thought it was a middle ear infection. A couple of days went by and it just got worse. He started complaining of "fireworks" (tingling) in his body. He was taken to the ER where he had many tests including CT, MRI (which showed brain lesions), and a lumbar puncture. Two weeks after he was discharged he went back with new symptoms. Anthony had about 4-5 relapses within 6 months, and at that point he was diagnosed with MS.

Anthony LOVES Legos! He is also a talented artist, and enjoys drawing.

Anthony says the most challenging part about MS is the complications of his MS treatment.
