Utica man with Multiple Sclerosis wants to document his journey: VIDEO






















Ron Oakes is working on a documentary to show the world what's it's like having MS.

"Talking to a person about MS that's one thing. To actually witness somebody doing their thing with MS is a whole different."

Ron is hoping to convey the experience of living with the disease, but he's also sending a message of inspiration.

"The pure diagnosis of MS it's just a life altering, life changing event, and that's all it is. You can still live. You can't do everything you used to do, but you can still do a lot."

Doing a lot can be a challenge as many people suffer from overwhelming fatigue, problems with vision, and difficulties with mobility. Multiple Sclerosis symptoms are unpredictable and can vary from person to person. Symptoms can also fluctuate over time making MS difficult to diagnose.

"Some of me died that day from the diagnosis, but some of me lived too because for 20 almost 30 years I was looking for answers, well I finally got em'."

He also got an answer on how to live with MS.

"Life is what it is. Life is what you make of it."

If you would like to help Ron Oakes finish his documentary, you can contact him by e-mail at ron112762@hotmail.com.
