Jason: To help me gain perspective, my mom takes me to an MS support group. There was this girl there. Her name was Alice, and I got her phone number. I decided to give Alice a call. I may be walking slower, but inside, I'm racing.

Jason: That was really, really fun.

Alice: I sent an email to my dad, and I said, "Can you date someone with MS?" and my dad said, "Yes, I'm dating someone with MS right now."
