This High School Track Star Doesn’t Let M.S. Stop Her, In Fact It’s What Drives Her

Kayla Montgomery is a top runner for Mount Tabor High School in Winston-Salem, NC. At age 15 she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (M.S.) and had to quit playing soccer (her favorite sport), so running has become her passion. She is treated like any other member of the team until she crosses the finish line when her coach has to employ his “catch Kayla committee.”

When she was diagnosed, she told her coach, “I don’t know what the future will hold for me, but right now I feel good. I want to run as fast as possible.”

Talk about giving it everything you have…literally. This is one amazing young woman.

    Take caution when being diagnosed with MS.

    Lyme Disease and it’s co-infections mimic over 350 diseases.
    It is an epidemic proportions around the world and here in the United States.

    You can get a blood test from Igenex in California. Google their website. Testing can be very inacurate. Several tests should be done.

    Please try this route. Your daughter’s life depends on it. A simple blood test can make all of the difference in her life.

    You can also watch the movie, “Under Our Skin.” You should watch the movie to see if things sound all too familiar.

    I am NOT saying that she absolutely has Lyme. I suffered 8 years before I was properly diagnosed. I’m just passionate about spreading the word.

    My brother was diagnosed with MS only to find out that it is Lyme.
