Cathy Chester

Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1986. Today my mission is to help others feel empowered & less alone. I created an award-winning, blog AnEmpoweredSpirit.com, & write for PatientsLikeMe, MultipleSclerosis.net, Multiple Sclerosis News Today & Mango Health. I’m the blogger for The Consortium of Multiple Sclerosis Centers. My blog has been voted by WEGO Health & Healthline as a top MS blog, & I received the Thumbs Up 2017 Award from CMSC for promoting MS nursing. I have a certificate in Patient Advocacy & a Bachelor of Arts degree from Boston College. I’ve been happily married since 1988. We are blessed with an incredible son & two adorable cats who really run our home.
