In March this year, as part of her efforts to help raise awareness for MS in New Zealand, More FM’s Breakfast Club’s Sam Baxter bravely shared her MS diagnosis. Inspired by Selma Blair’s openness with her own diagnosis, Sam felt it was time to share her own experience with her More FM family, colleagues and listeners.
As part of MS Awareness Week, Sam looks back at the positive impact of being open and honest about her MS diagnosis and how it was ‘the best thing I ever did’. Thousands of listeners and people with MS contacted Sam ‘who are like me and still living a great normal happy life. It wasn’t some sort of death sentence, we were all okay, just had to get on with it’.
