Devin Garlit

Patient Leader

I've lived with Multiple Sclerosis my entire life. First as a child where I helped care for my grandfather, who suffered from the disease, and then, as a patient, since 2000 when I was diagnosed at the age 21. Placed on disability at just 35, I write about my life with the disease, as well as every other aspect. No topic is out of bounds for me and my goal is to simply to be real. I don't claim to have all the answers, but I can definitely talk about the disease accurately and be 100% honest. My goals are always, to raise knowledge about the diease, but to also make those suffering understand that there is someone else out there that understands them, to show them that they are not alone.
