    I was diagnosed right before my son’s first birthday. He is now 19, and a smart, empathetic, amazing person, just like these girls! I related spot on to EVERYTHING in the video! MS stinks, but if it gives the world amazing, aware and thoughtful people in our children, at least there is one positive!

    Great video! Made me tear up a bit, but so inspiring to see how mature and positive your girls are. And now I think it’s time to teach my 9-year-old daughter how to do laundry!
