My Mission

I help MS warriors (patients), caregivers, and families who struggle with a feeling of a loss of control to gain confidence in dealing with this disease by providing information, inspiration and motivation. And a little attitude. #FUMS.

Hot off the Press

I'm so excited to bring this new book to you.

I LOVE IT. There is just the right combination of facts and funny. Truly, this is an uncomfortable topic to discuss at any level, and the information given is thorough, clear, and easily understandable - with a few chuckles thrown in. I'm a firm believer in not taking anything too seriously, and while this subject matter has the potential to be big problems for us MS’ers, I learned a lot and am Kegel-ing away. Thank you again, best wishes and best of luck! And, always, FUMS.

Thank you so much for all your hard work. The book is going to be a wonderful resource for those of us who struggle with these lovely issues. I’d recommend this ebook to anyone suffering from these issues.

Sharon Keverline

MD, FACOG

The authors have tackled a subject that is extremely common but oftentimes not addressed by patients or health care professionals. Perhaps this reticence is because patients are embarrassed and/or members of the medical community are unaware that treatment options exist. This book breaks down both of those barriers. Using humor and accessible language it addresses sensitive issues while providing guidance on how to achieve symptomatic improvement.

I really liked the book. It was quick and easy reading for my MS brain, and was informative with a good laugh here and there. If you didn't want to put it on your coffee table, it would be great bathroom reading material! I will definitely recommend this book, not to just MS’ers, but anyone with undercarriage issues.
