Jack had just become a father when he was diagnosed in 2012, however, he was determined that MS would not beat him and that he was going to continue to enjoy life. He explains that although it’s not unusual for men to be diagnosed with MS in their twenties, it’s usually women who develop the disease. Jack explains that living with relapsing-remitting MS means that you’re never sure when MS will strike, you can be fine one day but you never know what the following day will bring.

    I was diagnosed with relapsing/remitting MS at 25 and it is generally people’s reaction to the information that I have a chronic disease than the disease itself. And it never helps when I get the response of, “But you look so healthy!”. I still don’t have a response to that one; “Thank you”? “You can’t catch it from me”? It’s usually easiest to just walk away.
