Boston man with MS reaches new heights with support partner

Brian Moore-Ward recently climbed to the top of Boston’s tallest building to raise awareness for multiple sclerosis (MS). He has conquered this 60-flight climb seven years in a row.

While this event would be a challenge for anyone, it’s especially impressive given Brian has lived with MS for nearly 10 years. Brian says this wouldn’t have been possible without the support of his spouse Charlie.

Brian was recently married and just shy of turning 30 when he was diagnosed with relapsing MS, a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. That’s when his world changed.

After being diagnosed, Brian didn’t know where to turn for information and support. Thankfully, Charlie took charge. He identified local support groups and helped Brian connect with others living with MS.

“Charlie has been my rock,” says Brian. “He helped me recognize how important it is to have a close-knit community and physical connections to navigate life with MS.”

In addition to local support groups, Brian has recently discovered an online, personalized resource for people affected by MS. AboveMS.com provides tips, tools and inspiration from experts who know firsthand what it’s like to live with the disease. On the site, MS expert contributors share their insights on topics ranging from diet and exercise to work, travel and emotional health.

MS impacts 2.3 million people worldwide, often striking them in the prime of their lives. Symptoms may be mild, moderate or severe, ranging from numbness in the limbs to paralysis or loss of vision.

“Living with MS has been an unpredictable and sometimes emotional journey,” says Brian. “My husband, extended family and healthcare team have been my pillars of strength throughout, as have the close friends I’ve developed within my local MS community.”

“Today I feel good, and while I can’t predict what lies ahead, I know I can get through anything thanks to Charlie and my larger support network,” says Brian.
