Many of our members will be familiar with Anthony Mennillo, either through reading his articles in the Bulletin or having obtained advice or assistance from Anthony following a call to MIGA for medico-legal assistance.
Anthony was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 2008 and shortly after he commenced the Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis (OMS) Program. This lifestyle program aims to control the progression of the disease through diet and exercise. The Program has assisted Anthony get the upper hand on the disease, both physically and mentally. Anthony has seen the lesions on his spine disappear, has been MS relapse free and is fitter and healthier than he has ever been. He is an inspiration to all his colleagues at MIGA!
There are over 2.5 million people around the world living with MS. As a charity, OMS is reliant on donations to continue their work improving the health and lives of people with MS. Anthony has put together a team of friends and family to run the 42.2 km New York City Marathon on the 6th of November this year to raise funds for the charity.
