Axel's Battle with Multiple Sclerosis
Organized by: Axel Robertson
Hello, everyone, my name is Axel Robertson. I'm a professional musician, multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, singer and actor with many years of experience in hundreds of venues all around the world. I was diagnosed with Multiple Scleroris back in May 2015. Ever since, I've seen several doctors, I've been hospitalized with relapses and even a couple of times in a mental institution due to extreme depression caused by my diagnosis. After seeing many doctors both in Florida and in my new home Alexandria, Viriginia, it is still my biggest fear that I will become unable to coordinate my movements, unable to play instruments, unable to take care of myself at all. My current neurologist prescribed a medication called "Avonex" which will help keep the condition in check and will help me live a normal life, but unfortunately, it's an extremely expensive medication (over $5,000) and I cannot currently afford it. I have medical bills piling up and the horizon is looking very bleak. I'm counting on all your donations to help me reach my goal and save my life. Any amount, no matter how little, is very appreciated. God bless you all!
