JOY WAGNER, RN, BSN, a pediatric nurse, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2001; she was a single mom with two children under the age of 10. She was homebound for four months, gave up her job, and needed help caring for herself and her children. For Wagner, giving up was not an option. She returned to nursing training to research what might allow her to reclaim her mobility and independence. The result of her newfound mission was the creation of fitMS® and in 2010, NeuroBalance Center—a resource for people with neuromuscular conditions. Wagner shares some of her expertise here.
