Introduction by Mary Pettigrew: I was diagnosed with MS in 2001. I remember there were very few resources for me to turn to back then. There were only a few books, the National MS Society had a quarterly magazine, & then there was Stuart. Stuart was the first online newsletter I subscribed to after my diagnosis. It’s interesting how times have changed & although I still subscribe to his newsletter, a friendship has blossomed over the last few years. Much has happened in the world of MS in 17 years. We now have an influx of information to rummage through! Despite all the blogs, websites, & social media platforms readily available, Stuart is there too – moving just as fast & strong as the others. He’s an inspiration to so many of us & I’m happy to call him my friend. Stuart travels all over the country to educate & to bring more MS awareness to others. This post contains information about upcoming events. For further event info, location & details please subscribe to the MS Views & News newsletter, explore the website ( link is posted below) & follow him on Twitter, Facebook & LinkedIn. Stay tuned for future bulletins posted here on our MSpals website with more details pertaining to upcoming seminars & events.
