Randy Patrick (Must Stop MS!)

Patient Leader

After being dx'd with MS in November 2012, I wanted to do my part in helping others who are diagnosed. Talking with others via social media helped me the most & helped me realize this disease was manageable. I created Must Stop MS! on Facebook as a place to provide support, raise awareness & provide news & information about Multiple Sclerosis. I ventured into the Twitter and Instagram shortly after. The MS Community is filled with amazing & supportive people & are the strongest people I know. I host #ChatMS every Monday at 7pm EST, which is a weekly chat dedicated to MS. #ChatMS is on Twitter, via a Facebook closed group, and now Instagram. It's a great place to get support, learn, & share!

I was thrilled to nominate Randy last year & he won! He is highly deserving of another nomination this year as well. Randy continues to stand out as lead host for #ChatMS every Monday evening, 7-8pm EST. He is supportive, respectful, funny & maintains a loyal following. Also, he stays on trend with rotating topics of interest & importance.  — Mary
