A Father and Son with different forms of MS








 Alan and David Osmond

When Alan Osmond, one of the members of The Osmonds singing troupe, first began tripping inexplicably on stage in 1987, he was unsure of what was happening. He was eventually diagnosed with primary-progressive multiple sclerosis, but was determined to not be a victim. "I may have MS, but MS does not have me," he often says.
Nearly 20 years later, in 2006, his son David was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis. And like his father, David continues to perform and raise awareness as a speaker for the National MS Society.

In 2014, David’s song "I Can Do This" was released as part of the Our Voice in Song campaign, which was launched in collaboration with Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corporation to raise awareness of relapsing forms of MS.

===================

For anybody that has heard David speak, he has a very interesting story, which I hope to one day be able to share with you in greater detail, than my interview that I recently had with David --   Stuart
