I absolutely love this story and just reading it makes you fall in love with Catherine. Not only because of her strong will to go on fighting through this medical condition and absolutely loving what she does but to also have such a wonderful family. That is truely the best of the best. Family is the most important thing in my life and I have not only MS, but a damaged spinal chord and another chronic disease I am trying to fight through. I do have my strength from my family and they are always doing funny and silly things too. I also have the same passion Catherine has with her quilting but it is with my extended family of dogs, my best friends, who manage to keep me strong and quite busy. Thank you for this story, thank you Catherine, I think we are so blessed.

I knew Cathy way back when... Her optimism is quite catchy which makes her a delight to be with. I, too, have MS... when Cathy and I first met (outside of church - St Michael's in Bratt;eboro) she told me she had MS and I said, "Welcome to the club!" She was surprised since like so many MSers you couldn't tell by looking at me. I've been lucky and am still walking on my own.
I, too, enjoy sewing...it's a great way to lose your troubles, whether it's sewing for grandchildren, machine embroiderying, or quilting, it's such a relazing way to spend the day.
Great to read about Cathy...please tell her I said hi!
