After battling chronic fatigue for four years, a diagnosis of optic neuritis and Multiple Sclerosis was welcome news for Martha Rogers, who thought she had a serious brain tumor. Join Martha and Hank, her husband, as they embark on their journey to discover the “new normal” for life with MS. Hank chronicled their adventures with MS over the last eight years, and provides an insightful guide for other husband caregivers ready to face the challenge of supporting their wife with this unsettling disease.
Learn how Martha becomes an advocate for MS, raises over forty-thousand dollars for MS through Challenge Walks and testifies before the FDA to re-release Tysabri, the drug she depends on for a decent quality of life.
This is Hank’s first book and he has always had a penchant for writing. His wife inspired him and his conversion to Catholicism in 2000 prepared him to confront life’s daily battles with a firm foundation. The most difficult aspect of your wife’s initial diagnosis of MS is the breadth of impact it has on your marriage. He felt empowered to write this book to help other husbands understand the disease and what their wife is grappling with and what you need to do in order to keep your own sanity!
Know that life is going to change now that your wife has multiple sclerosis. However, you will learn how to “define the new normal” for your relationship and although difficult at times, life can still be rewarding. Hank and Martha Rogers have encountered quite an adventurous journey down the MS highway for the last eight years.
