Hilarious Patient Leader

I'll nominate Ardra for this every year until she wins! Ardra shares some of the nitty, gritty details of life with MS. She advocates for things like accessible spaces and gets vulnerable. She's got heart and it shows. But she tends to lead with humor and that's why her voice is one of my favorites. Thanks for always making me smile!  — Kayla
