Strides being made in fight against MS
Pat and Gerry Wilson remember the phone call they received 11 years ago, informing them that their 24-year-old son was going into a Northern B.C. hospital for steroid treatment after losing sight in his eye.
“He had virtually gone blind,” Gerry said. “He had to receive a three-day treatment in one eye.”
After being referred to St. Paul’s Hospital closer to home in Surrey for further tests, Pat’s maternal instinct kicked in and she knew she had to be there with her son.
“I had this inkling that this was bigger than what we thought it would be,” she recalled.
