In the video

These people aren’t actors. They are strong-willed individuals, united by their refusal to let their illness control their lives. The locations you see them in are not film sets but real places from their actual lives, which their friends and family introduce us to. They are shaping their future how they want, because they want to live! Just like everyone else, they want to be recognised for who they are. They wanted to share their personal message with us – how they really feel – to show the world how to live life to the full.

The people in this film all live with multiple sclerosis.

MS affects 2.5 million1 people worldwide and around 15,0002 people in Switzerland. In fact, multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological condition among young adults.

I always wanted to be a mum. I was not going to let my MS diagnosis take that dream away from me. Now I want to give other people the courage they need to follow their dreams.

I found my MS diagnosis really hard to come to terms with. Once I had accepted it as part of who I am, I was able to enjoy my life again and get back to following my crazy ideas.

There is nothing and no one that could take away my love for travel. When I’m travelling, I feel an indescribable sense of freedom. I’m not afraid of jumping head-first into the unknown, because I truly believe that we have the power to shape our lives however we want.
Find out more about Anita

Anita was 20 when she was diagnosed with MS. Shortly afterwards, she started travelling, and lived and worked in New Zealand from 2009 to 2016. Her travels also gave her the opportunity to discover herself, and all the amazing things we can trust our bodies to do. Meditating regularly gives her a sense of peace and allows her body to truly rest.
