LEMTRADA is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis (MS). Because of its risks, LEMTRADA is generally used in people who have tried 2 or more MS medicines that have not worked well enough. It is not known if LEMTRADA is safe and effective for use in children under 17 years of age.

Do not receive LEMTRADA if you are infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).

What inspires me:

Challenges, my family, and the power of positive change

My happy place is:

The trail where I ride my horse

A quote I live by is: 

“I’ve learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends on our dispositions and not our circumstances.” —Martha Washington

My name’s Rachel, and I live in Pennsylvania with my husband of 15 years and our three uniquely lovely children—Hailey, Megan, and Gabe. I like to call myself the “Domestic Engineer” of our very busy household, and that’s what motivates me to manage my relapsing MS.

When I’m not getting creative in the kitchen, or volunteering at our school, I like to take time for myself. Whether I’m simply reading a book or riding my horse, I find joy in both the little and the big things in life. And since my family and my hobbies are all connected to my health, it’s extremely important to me.

I chose to tell my story about LEMTRADA and MS, because I want to help others, contribute to the MS community, and be a positive influence and inspiration to others. I’ve got a good story to tell, and I’m not finished writing it yet!
