HTHT Scientist, Lunar Leslie Steps Up to Fight Multiple Sclerosis

HTHT Scientist Leslie Newman, also known as Lunar Leslie, was featured in the local Hendersonville Citizen Times newspaper this  week. Leslie is an avid hiker, runner and athlete despite being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2005.  The Hendersonville Citizen Times article features Leslie and the self defense class she took part in- coined “Disabled but not Defenseless.”

Multiple sclerosis, often called MS, is a disease that affects the central nervous system-the brain and the spinal cord. It can cause problems with muscle control and strength,vision, balance, feeling, and thinking.  MS affects each person differently so understanding the basics about MS is just the first step for people diagnosed with the illness.

Through volunteering and planning fundraisers through community events, Leslie has become an asset to the WNC Multiple Sclerosis community- empowering herself & others affected by MS with the tools needed to live their life to the fullest despite having this unique and comprimising disease. Lunar Leslie remains active and has become a valuable member of the High Touch High Tech team.

As she continues to use her illness for good,  High Touch High Tech is proud to stand with her every step of the way! There are many ways that you can help those affected by this disease. Funds raised for the National MS Socieity go to the medical research that can one day find a cure for this disease.  Read the full article in The Citizen Times by clicking here:  All we can say is …Way to Go Leslie!
