The following is a re-posting; this post led to the survey and debate about should we or shouldn’t we celebrate MS heroes?
I have just received, today, a signed version of a book by Charles Fox “With a Little Help from My Friends: A Love Story”. Charles has had MS for over 30 years. I met him over the internet; he contacted me via email to ask me questions about Queen Square and the practice of neurology in the United Kingdom and specifically at the hospital where he was originally diagnosed.
Whilst looking for his book on the web, I found this YouTube clip of him and Véro (apologies, it is a commercial but that is not the point).
In the acknowledgements he writes: “But, first and foremost, I thank my wife, Véro, for having sustained me long enough to get the job done and for giving me a happy ending.”
