Chapter 13: Joyrified

Dave Bexfield on the cover of MS Momentu

My goal with ActiveMSers is to provide practical information on how to stay active (physically, intellectually, and socially)—when traveling, playing in the outdoors, exercising, or just plain enjoying life—regardless of our disabling diseases and the sometimes-devastating symptoms they throw at us. With MS Diagnosed, I hope my story will challenge both you and the medical establishment to reexamine life with a progressive disease, send reverberating shockwaves throughout the disabled community, rewrite the rulebook of healthcare, all while potentially changing your entire future."
