Ataxia is very closely related to MS.

Jewerly of Hope - Made by Frances

I was diagnosed in 2010 at the age of 30 with Spinocerebellar Ataxia. A large number of Ataxians are diagnosed in their 50's and 60's. Ataxia has greatly affected the way that I  walk and stand. I need assistance when I walk, I  I use a walker all day. The function of my hands has not been greatly affected yet, so I can make Hope Jewelry.
