In this video from London Real, we see a short segment of an interview between host Brian Rose and Kaz Aston, a disability rights campaigner and fundraiser for multiple sclerosis charities who lives in Berkshire, England. Aston was diagnosed with MS in her early twenties but hasn’t let the disease get in the way of living life to the fullest.

Boyz II Men star Michael McCary reveals he has been living with MS for over 20 years.

Rose asks a simple question: what can we learn from people with multiple sclerosis? Aston’s response is to live for today but to make sure you can afford to get through tomorrow. Wise words which can be applied to everyone, we should all be getting the most out of life, savoring every experience and trying new things because none of us really know what the future has in store for us. Find out what else Aston had to said about her attitude to multiple sclerosis here.
