Rochester woman with multiple sclerosis tells her story before MS Walk: VIDEO


























Sarah Larson on a trip with her husband

This weekend walkers will fill the streets of Rochester to raise money for Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.) research. The disease affects millions worldwide including Sarah Larson who lives in Rochester.

Diagnosed 16 years ago by Mayo's Doctor John Noseworthy, Sarah found herself bedridden.

"It was awful. When you have an attack, or when your symptoms flare up, you don't know if you are going to get better," said Larson.

That day Noseworthy told her to grieve, come to terms with the illness, and move forward.

"We all have something and you just have to go on, it's like I don't want M.S. to rule me, and I have lots of fun," said Larson.

She and her family began traveling the world. "We backpacked down ten miles in Havasupai," said Larson looking at pictures of her travels, "I plan to do the things that are really important to me."

Her new mentality means not holding anything back. "I don't know what tomorrow is going to bring. I might have a huge attack tomorrow. I don't know, and that is what is just kind of scary about M.S." said Larson before reiterating, "You just don't know."

While a smile wont cure multiple sclerosis, for Sarah it's a start.
