Local Author Using Books for MS Awareness: VIDEO






















“I just want people with MS to know that they’re not alone. There is a big population of people with multiple sclerosis in the world.”

Author Lisa McCombs was diagnosed with multiple scleroses in 2001, an experience she’s now using to help those who feel alone.

“I had no idea what was wrong with me,” McCombs said. “I didn’t know what multiple sclerosis was. It was one of those alphabet diseases as far as I was concerned, MS, MD, so I was just very concerned.”

McCombs kept track of her experiences by writing, something she then shared with her students.

“I had been playing around with a story about a young girl whose mother had MS,” McCombs said. “They liked it and they gave me homework. Every week they encouraged me to write more and more.”

That book became “Abby”, then most recently “I have MS. What’s Your Super Power” was published, a non-fiction account of McCombs’ experiences.

During the rest of March and the beginning of April, a portion of the sales of those books will be going to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

“Physically I cannot walk in an MS walk or a bike-a-thon. I just didn’t know where to go or what to do to bring awareness to MS to offer some support financial support in the MS research,” McCombs said. “So I thought this is my thing.”

To purchase McCombs’ books, you can email her at lisaannettemccombs@yahoo.com or visit her online blog lisa-mccombs.blogspot.com.

She will also be holding a book signing at the Marion County Public Library on April 2nd from 10 A.M. until 3 P.M.
