Living with MS: how one young woman inspires others

Skiing and shopping…how much better can it get when you are 15 years old? Rachel Jaspring, of Chancellor, was enjoying a vacation in Colorado with her cousin. On the third day of her trip, she woke up with cloudy vision in her left eye. She kept rubbing at it. Maybe she had pinkeye, she thought, and it would get better. Being a typical teenage girl, she wasn’t going to let trouble with her eye ruin her trip. 
But her eye didn’t get better. It kept getting worse. Rachel kept it to herself, thinking “I love skiing, I’m not going to say anything. I don’t want to go home.”
