Dealing with multiple sclerosis (MS) is no walk in the park, but there are great examples and inspiring stories of people who never give up fighting it.

Meet Ian Franks, MS News Today’s contributor blogger who wants you to join him in “the race to beat MS. Run to win.”

Rayna Aivazoglou created this short documentary as part of her thesis, mentored by HBO and ESPN, to showcase the life her aunt, Christina Aivazoglou, who is battling against primary progressive multiple sclerosis.

Christina is a personal fitness trainer and a health therapist coach who up until August 16, 2006 – the day she was diagnosed – “ate, breathed and slept nutrition.”

Thanks to this documentary, Rayna Aivazoglou raised $3,500 dollars to help the National MS Society find a true cure to battle MS. Donate here.

“Despite ten failed treatments, depression, and isolation from the world, she continues to fight hoping one day she’ll walk again.”

Recently, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gave priority review to a request to approve Ocrevus (ocrelizumab) as a treatment for both relapsing and primary progressive MS.
