Christine skiing

After all her hardwork, check out Christine skiing like a pro!  Remember, this is her first time skiing in a long time and she was brave enough to learn with a visual impairment due to NMO (Neuromyelitis Optica).  Note her stylin’ safety vest!

For Christine’s thoughts on her day, check out her blog, The Blind Cook.

    Hi Jenna

    We are looking at a possible story on NMO . I understand it can strike suddenly with devastating effects and an early diagnosis is crucial. Unfortunately, it appears to be frequently misdiagnosed as MS which can delay appropriate treatment.

    We’ve been speaking with neurologists and patients in the US but would very much like to find patients and caregivers/families from Canada to share their story.

    I’m hoping you will contact me as a story on this ‘orphan disease,’ which seems to exist in the shadow of MS, could raise awareness and perhaps help people get the treatment they need sooner.

    Sincerely,
    Patti Newman
