Jennifer and Dan Digmann have been married since 2005 and have lived with Multiple Sclerosis throughout their relationship - Jennifer was diagnosed in 1997, Dan in the year 2000. They met at a National Multiple Sclerosis Society event in 2002, and since then have dedicated their lives to MS activism and helping others to live their best life.
In this interview, Dan and Jennifer talk about the sense of shame that surrounded an MS diagnosis in the 90s-2000s, which meant that they were unaware of previous histories of MS in both of their families. They also advise people looking for their own diagnosis to be persistent and keep detailed notes of their symptoms, in order to make it easier for doctors to join the dots.
