In ‘Take Action on MS,’ a New Web Series, Actress Madeleine Stowe Tackles Topics of Import to RRMS Patients

Genzyme, a specialty care unit of Sanofi, announced that TV and film actress Madeleine Stowe will host its new online series, “Take Action on MS,” focusing on people living with relapsing multiple sclerosis (MS).

Stowe, whose father had MS, works with Genzyme to educate people across the U.S. about daily life with the disease. The actress participated in several events last year, meeting people with relapsing MS and their care partners, and sharing her own story about growing up in a family affected by the disease. In the new Web series, Stowe will team with a registered nurse, a certified life coach, an exercise specialist, and MS patients to talk about lifestyle issues thought to be particularly relevant — and challenging to discuss — by the MS community. Topics to be covered in different webisodes include feelings of being overwhelmed, asking for help, and being intimate with a partner.

“Touring the country and having real conversations with people living with relapsing MS and their care partners was more impactful than I could have imagined,” said Stowe in a press release. “I had the opportunity to hear directly from people who are battling this disease and gain true insight into the challenges they face on a daily basis, which is why I’m excited to introduce in partnership with Sanofi Genzyme this new video series to continue sharing with the community in a broader way.”

When Stowe’s father was fighting MS, no approved treatment options existed. Today, patients have several options to choose from, including the oral therapy Aubagio (teriflunomide), an immunomodulatory drug with anti-inflammatory properties to treat relapsing MS, produced by Sanofi Genzyme.

“Take Action on MS” is one of several campaigns and resources offered the MS community by the company through its MS One to One program, which provides a range of information and treatment options to MS patients, and is staffed with MS specialty nurses and trained representatives.

“People living with relapsing MS may be uncomfortable talking about certain issues that impact their lives as a result of their disease,” said Beverly Layton, a nurse who collaborates in the series and is featured in several “Take Action on MS” webisodes. “Hearing from others who may be facing similar challenges and knowing you’re not alone helps to begin the conversation and empowers people to communicate more openly with family, friends, and healthcare professionals.”
