Mary Ellen's Story

Mary Ellen was born in New York State but raised in Atlanta Georgia for most of her life. Around the age of 6 years, she was diagnosed with epilepsy (Petit Mal Temporal Lobe) and began to face the world with new challenges.

In 1986, Mary Ellen was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). But this diagnosis didn't slow Mary Ellen down.

Since then, she has lived a passionate life, seeking truth as the way to healing, and sharing her perspective and experience with the world around her.
