Ruth Furtado is a 53-year-old artist and resident of East Providence, RI. In 1999, when she noticed numbness in her toes, she just chalked it up to tying her sneakers too tight. What she could not have imagined was that it was the beginning of her battle with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). By February of 2010, she was hospitalized with a flare up of her MS symptoms which left her permanently disabled.
