NCC19 Presenter: Jon Strum
Since 1997, Jon has been a caregiver for his wife Jeanne, who lives with progressive MS. Jon's story as Jeanne's caregiver was featured in the documentary film, Seeing MS from the Inside Out, which had its premiere at ECTRIMS 2018 in Berlin, Germany.
Jon is a non-scientist member of the International Progressive MS Alliance Scientific Steering Committee, where he works to ensure that the perspectives of families affected by progressive MS are represented in all of the projects and work undertaken by the Alliance. Jon is also a District Activist Leader for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, and he serves as Chairman of the National MS Society's California Government Relations Advisory Council.
Join Jon for his presentation at the Fourth Annual National Caregiving Conference:
When and how to share your caregiving story.
Saturday 11 a.m.
The caregiver journey is never easy. Sometimes one of the hardest things to do is simply share your story with others. When is it the right time? Who do I share it with? How do I share it? These are the questions we all ask ourselves and it can be different for everyone. Caregiver Jon Strum will share how his caregiving journey has evolved and how he shared his story to support others.
