Patient's Story
We Connect Patients to Certified Clinicians. Here is How this Can Work for You!

We were contacted by Cindy and sent her to the Brian Center in North Carolina where she saw Julie Applewhite at the Brian Center. 

We received this beautiful note.  Thanks Julie for your great work!

The following is an excerpt of Cindy's story. Her complete testimonial is available on our website. 

I was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting MS in 1994 and my first symptom was dizziness and vertigo. The dizziness has never completely disappeared over the last 21 years, however, I've never let this disease stop me from living a normal life. 

In 2009, my physician told me that I would no longer be able to work and was I forced to take disability. Using a cane and a walker, I was determined to maintain an active lifestyle by changing my activities and became an avid swimmer and taught Deep Water Workouts at my local YMCA. 

In September of 2015, I developed a new lesion on my Thoracic spine that caused a devastating relapse that severely affected my mobility and left me pretty much home bound. I was devastated but still not ready to give up completely. I knew there had to be something out there that could help me besides all of the toxic IV steroids and other medications that I was pouring into my body. 

This amazing vest has changed my life in so many ways. I can now walk without a cane or walker, stand for longer periods of time to cook, put on my makeup at the bathroom mirror, walk my dog, grocery shop without using the Mart Kart, go up and down stairs with more confidence, and sit without pain. 

Again, thank you for your help. I look forward to improved strength and mobility using my new amazing vest!
