Rochesterian Vlad Stefanovic shares with the panel how Multiple Sclerosis has affected his life.

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a debilitating disease of the nervous system in which the protective sheath around nerve cells becomes damaged. Symptoms vary widely and cannot be predicted, but research and clinical experience are incrementally making treatments for MS more successful, giving individuals a better quality of life.
