Clay also has ms. Currently, there are more than 2.8 million individuals affected by MS. There is no cure for this disease in which the immune system attacks the nerves. The condition is also difficult to predict: Some people with MS have trouble walking or talking, while others have milder symptoms that flare and subside.
MS is difficult no matter who you are, and celebrities face additional challenges of keeping up public appearance and being up front with fans, along with sometimes demanding schedules and stressful working conditions—both known triggers for MS flare-ups. Clay is one of many celebrities faced with this disease and he’s speaking out to share information and resources he uses to successfully manage the disease. He shared details about his own journey and the importance of going “on the record” with your physician. In his case, taking time to keep current with his neurologist has had a huge impact, including a recent change in his disease management.
