The Major League Baseball regular season ends this week (where did the summer go?).
Amid the talks of which teams will play in the World Series is the buzz of who will win these prized post-season awards: Rookie of the Year, Cy Young, Manager of the Year, and Most Valuable Player.
In many senses, those of us with Multiple Sclerosis aren’t facing this disease of the central nervous system alone. We each have a whole team of medical professionals, family, friends, medicines and other therapies joining our respective teams in the shared battle with MS.
So in the spirit of the MLB awards, for 2011 who on your team would you give these awards to and why?
Rookie of the Year. An MLB award for the best new player, what new person, therapy or lifestyle change (diet, exercise, etc.) did you add to your team this year that has made the biggest impact in maintaining your health?
Cy Young. An MLB award for the best overall pitcher, what new or veteran person, therapy or habit did the most effective job at striking out MS and keeping it on its toes?
Manager of the Year. An MLB award for the best team manager, hat friend, family member or health care professional did the most outstanding job in helping to manage your MS treatment?
Most Valuable Player. An MLB award for the best overall player, what new or veteran person, therapy or lifestyle change (diet, exercise, etc.) was, without a doubt, the most instrumental in helping you to move forward in your fight with MS?
