About My name is Ellen. I am a wife, mother, and elementary teacher. I have had multiple sclerosis for fifteen years now. Over the past six years, it has really started to impact my mobility. I have gone from a cane, to a walker, to spending most of my time in an electric wheelchair or scooter. I also have weakness in my hands and left arm. The shift from walker to wheelchair has happened over the last five months. I feel that I am at a crossroads about my future. If I can't regain some of the mobility and strength I've lost in the last five months, I won't be independent enough to continue working and I still love teaching. I do think there is hope to regain some mobility with regular exercise, but I've been at a loss about how to start. I hope this program will help me with finding a path to better health.
