Conference Call Day

Yesterday I had 2 conference calls and a sore throat. Great combination !

The first call was with the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation as part of my role as an Ambassador with them.
We talked about speaking, writing speeches, delivering speeches, etc. I stayed pretty quiet during the call because my throat was on fire. I was chugging water and cough drops just to
stay on the call.
I learned alot ( although I give speeches alot) Thanks Kasey and the rest of the group for all your ideas. This will be a fun experience being an Ambassador for them .
They are a great organization. If you haven't checked them out please go to
If you want to read the article about the ambassador program or any other article go to MS Publications, newletters and magazines.
I am honored to be a part of this program.

The second call was for my role as a Tysabri patient advocate. Biogen Idec, the makers of Tysabri, has redesigned a website for MS er's and they wanted our opinion.
Wow ! a drug company that really wants to help their patients. I'm not sure you can say that about alot of drug companies.
I guess thats why when I was asked to share my story within their advocate program I agreed.
I am also honored to be a part of this program.
to check out their site go to
I think their are changes to follow but I like what they have done so far.

Have a great day everybody !
