Lorna J. Moorhead is the founder and president of MS MOMS, a California non-profit organization for women and mothers with multiple sclerosis. She has authored two books about living with MS in a "Girlfriend's Guide" manner. Lorna currently spends her days trying to raise 3 children, Stephan 10 yrs, Aidan 17 months, and Abigail 3 months, without going insane!!


Background Information

Try as she might to avoid it, Lorna always comes back to writing. When she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at 23, Lorna felt her world was falling apart. However, with an amazing amount of time on her hands, she decided it was not time to lay down, but time to kick butt. Using her writing to vent her own emotions and observations about MS, she has made a strong link to others with her condition. Finding many books and articles about MS to be sometimes depressing, scary, and utterly vague, Lorna decided to write about MS in a way that everyone would be able to understand and even laugh at. She wanted to not only try to embrace the MS community but to tickle them too! When Lorna found that services and for women and parents with MS seemed lacking, she formed her own non-profit organization, MS MOMS. The MS MOMS web site is a place for women and parents like herself, to vent, cry, love and laugh when this sometimes invisible disease leaves them feeling that they have no-one else to share with.
