Figure It Out: Adaptations and Staying Active – Episode 150 – Transcript

In this episode, we’re excited to feature our guest and past program participant, Danica King, who is thriving with MS thanks to her amazing ability to “figure it out.” We’re excited to have Danica on this episode while we celebrate Can Do Month, which is in honor of our founder Jimmie Heuga. Jimmie wore many hats including that of an athlete, Olympian, husband, father, and pioneer in the MS Community. Jimmie was all about discovering what you “Can Do” to be able to enjoy the things you love and even try new adventures while living with MS. There are a lot of parallels between Jimmie’s Can Do Spirit and Danica’s own story. Danica is passionate about adaptive sports and has participated in many sports and activities. Through her story she encourages us to “figure it out” whether that’s seeking out adaptive equipment or asking for help. You can check out more of Danica’s story in her book Figure It Out: Snapshots Of My Journey With Multiple Sclerosis and follow her on Instagram @FigureItOutMS
