MS doesn’t stop me getting out and about

Manuela, 48, Germany

I was diagnosed with MS in 2003. I am a single parent to three children, aged 10, 22 and 24.

My wheelchair is my constant companion and my assistant, helping me get from A to B. I rely on it to get me around, but I have never seen it as an embarrassment or a sign that says: “now I am disabled”.

My life is beautiful and I’m (mostly) happy. I love my music and I am singer in a band called “New Georgia Groove” and part of a duo called “TonArt“.
