Dealing with MS: VIDEO























For Maureen McAler Wolf, dealing with multiple sclerosis isn’t a new challenge. She went to the doctor at 28 and got a message she’d heard before.

“You’re young, you’re fine, it’ll go away,” Wolf said. “And it just kind of set a trigger off for me because at the age of 18, I had also tingling and numbing and I went through that same gamut of doctors at 18 and the last doctor said the same thing, ‘you’re young, you’re fine, it’ll go away.'”

But Wolf knew better at that point.

“But the difference between 18 and 28 was 10 years and I was not that naive anymore,” Wolf said.

She was eventually given a definite diagnosis of MS and spent the last 21 years dealing with it. Wolf recently moved to Clear Lake from Cedar Rapids, where she had spent a lot of time raising awareness for MS.

“My sister and her husband owned a bowling alley and they started any MS bowl which was amazing,” Wolf said. “They did it for 11 years.”

Now she is taking part in the Mason City MS Walk to raise awareness. The walk has been around for several years and brings out hundreds of people each time. Annually, the Upper Midwest Chapter raises about $2 million.

As for Wolf, she knows she is blessed to be in the position she is.

“I’m sitting here, I’m fine, I’m blessed not being in a wheelchair at this time,” Wolf said. “So if I can be blessed continuing on that route, that would be great.”
