Brooke Pelczynski community advocate Brooke PelczynskiBrooke began as a health leader on the community, and expanded her role as a Health Union team member.

Brooke Pelczynski is an artist, illustrator, and multiple sclerosis fighter. She was diagnosed in 2012, the summer before she graduated with her BFA in Illustration from the School of Visual Arts. Dropping paint brushes and seeing stars was just the beginning. She has been on 5 medications and finally found one that will hopefully click. Since then, she has come a long way in understanding that MS may have changed her life, but not necessarily for the worst. She has spoken about the challenges MS has taken on her artistic life, and continues to speak openly about the struggles it will cause in the future. After being diagnosed with Multiple sclerosis, her main objectives are to produce as much art as possible, learn to live and grow with her MS, and help others along their own MS journey!

“I never had an excuse to stay out of the heat before, and now I do. So that is a silver lining.”
