Despite MS, to Spite MS
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, more than 400,000 Americans have MS. Knowing these numbers makes it so much more amazing that these two people - Dan and Jennifer Digmann - found each other in Michigan and continue to defy the odds they face together.
Jennifer and Dan both have Multiple Sclerosis, and combined, they have taken on this chronic disease of the central nervous system for nearly 25 years.
Jennifer was diagnosed in 1997; Dan was diagnosed in 2000. She has secondary-progressive MS. His is relapsing-remitting. Through their writing, public speaking and advocacy work, the Digmanns have inspired countless friends, colleagues and perfect strangers with their amazing love story and passion for life.
See for yourself in this compilation of their heartfelt essays, accented by haiku-style poems by Judy Williams. Portions of the book proceeds will benefit the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Camp Courageous.
