Multiple Sclerosis Editorial Session with Gwyneth & John
“A true champion will fight through anything.” - Floyd Mayweather, Jr.
I had the honor of meeting this amazing couple, when I was contacted by a local health magazine doing a story on Gwyneth’s battle with Multiple Scleroses. Her inspirational story was discovered through her Instagram posts @ilooknormal and blog simplygwyneth.com where she share’s her struggles and gives other’s battling with MS courage through her own experiences.
Her diagnosis came in Jan of 2013 and while she has many challenges she finds comfort in cooking and spending time with their dog, Lucy, who is full of sloppy wet kisses. But most of all Gwyneth finds comfort and support in her husband John who also struggles with a rare genetic disease (M.E.N. Type 1), diagnosed at age 14. He has taught her many things like how to live with an incurable condition. These two amazing humans were such a joy and inspiration to work with. Truly some of the most positive people I’ve ever met! They have been together for 10 years and just recently celebrated their 5th wedding anniversary.
Thank you both for being so awesome to work with, your story is an inspiration.
