What's The Matter With Me? Podcast

I have multiple sclerosis, trigeminal neuralgia and I made this podcast to share what I’m going through.

In the new episode of What’s The Matter With Me?, “I Made The Paper,” I did just that

I made the paper! We were in the San Leandro Times last week. My kids loved it, it’s good for business, and you know me, I love getting myself out there and in front of people. The best is when I can demonstrate how people with MS can accomplish their goals.
