About Devin Garlit

My experience with MS goes back to childhood, well before my own diagnosis. My grandfather (and his father before him) suffered from MS and eventually became completely disabled.

I was hospitalized and my doctors ran numerous tests before confirming what seemed obvious to my family: I had MS.
