I am an American born actor, Advocate for Multiple System Atrophy, and a Face for MSA Awareness. Diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy in 2017. Started working with the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition in 2018.
You've heard of Parkinson's disease and You've heard of Lou Gerhigs disease, but what if you had a combination of both?
I was a volunteer firefighter, volunteer emt, auxiliary police officer, emt for local hospital, full time street supervisor and security/bouncer all consecutively.
That all changed once I was diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy.
Raising awareness of Multiple System Atrophy is critical due to it being so rare and maintaining a positive attitude.
I begun working with the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition in 2018.
Currently I am on the General Advisory Council with the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition.
Just knowing that we are reaching out to showcase this rare and terminal neurological illness with an outlook that is positive and heartwarming.
