One of the things I will be talking about more often is 4 years ago I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Obviously that is a lifelong diagnosis. There is no cure.

Researchers reveal possible new treatment methods for a rare, usually fatal brain disease.The JC virus, a member of the polyoma tumor virus family,  was first isolated from the brain of a patient who was suffering from a rare brain disease known as progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Antibodies in PML patients often fail to recognize the JC virus they are infected with.
