Kass’ Quest for a Cure: Beating NMO with a Stem Cell Transplant
Kassandra Rockhold was diagnosed with MS over 30 years ago, a time when MS was difficult to diagnose. Her treatment and care followed that of many MS sufferers. None of the prescribed MS medications worked and her disease continued to progress. Last summer was a difficult one for Kass. Her pain became severe. After years of suffering in near silence, Kass admitted her pain to her daughters who worked hard to find treatment options.
