Brandy Hardy- Life with MS

This is the story of my friend, Brandy Hardy – a mother of two boys, daughter, sister, aunt, wonder woman and a dear friend that was diagnosed with a progressive, incurable and a neurological disorder, called Multiple Sclerosis.  Otherwise known as MS or by its nickname “The Invisible Disease.”

Brandy has suffered from MS for multiple years. Learning to deal with the challenges as they come.  But when she had a relapse also known as a flare up her life was flipped upside down. Brandy was rushed to the hospital after waking up completely paralyzed on one side of her body. After countless test, medications and time she was finally sent home.  She is currently home but unable to see or hear on the left side of her body. This once vibrant young mom is now taking medication for the constant nausea and having to depend on her mother to bath her and take care of her 2 year old son Jackson while she is bed ridden. She cannot drive, she cannot work and is currently in limbo until enough time passes for her to heal from the neurological damage.  She needs our help! She is a single mom and the sole financial caretaker of her two sons and her mother. 

 

Relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) is the most common form of multiple sclerosis (MS). MS is an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation of the insulating membranes (myelin) that surround nerves within the central nervous system.

 In RRMS, there are clear episodes of inflammatory activity (relapses). During a relapse, there are new or worsening symptoms. Relapses are also called attacks, flare-ups, or exacerbations. Relapses are followed by remission, during which the disease does not progress. Residual symptoms may remain during remission. People with RRMS may go on to develop a progressive form of the disease.
