Bruna

Patient Leader

I have Multiple Sclerosis since I was 14 years old. In 2009 I started writing a blog about living with MS because I wanted to find younger, like me, who have the same experiences, which suffered the same fears. The blog grew and today I talk every day to hundreds of people who have been diagnosed and do not know what to do. It is not easy to know that you will have a disease for the rest of your life when your life has just begun. I write and share my experience to encourage people to live a happy life with MS. I believe that the more awareness you have about the disease itself, more mechanisms to facilitate your life you develop. I work for it.

Nominations

Health Activist Hero Best in Show: Youtube

She's a health activist that helps a lot of people to face a new multiple sclerosis diagnostic. Her blog works to awareness of the disease and educate for how to live well with multiple sclerosis. To me and my diagnostic, it was essencial. That's why I'd like to nominate Bruna Silveira.  — Jaime
