Leann Stickel on Living With MS

The Power of Positive Thinking.

Today’s episode is the story of an eternal optimist with four small children finding out she has a chronic illness and her navigation of life with that illness over 13 years.

Leann explains Multiple Sclerosis – her symptoms, what it is and how it manifests… all in lay terms and with great analogies.

After a good cry and some despair, Leann regained her positivity and there’s been no looking back.  Her message though, is to honour the sad.

Her attitude is a model to strive for no matter what you’re looking at.  If life becomes a dry, crumby cake… find the frosting! And sprinkles!

Bring the Joy!  Express Gratitude.  Be a Clapper.
