MS doesn’t stop me empowering other people
Rajiv, 35, India
I was diagnosed with MS aged 18. I was stuck in bed for almost two years until I decided to get my life back on track.
Soon afterwards I went to the Indian Spinal Injuries Centre for physiotherapy. I started using a wheelchair to get around and I was introduced to wheelchair sports.
I’ve always loved sport and before MS I was a keen footballer. I decided to master wheelchair sports and after a lot of hard training I went on represent India in wheelchair tennis and to win the Delhi marathon five times!
Eventually I was offered a job as a rehab sports trainer at the centre where I’d once been a patient.
