When I first thought to put this post together, I only envisaged producing a list of famous people who were unfortunate enough to share this debilitating disease, called Multiple Sclerosis, with me.

Name Checking Famous People

And that should have been enough. Except, that:

  1. I hadn’t really researched the subject enough
  2. At the time I wasn’t using the WP plugin Yoast SEO
  3. My multiple Sclerosis wasn’t that severe.

Now, I realise there is a lot more to creating a successful WordPress blog post, than just cobbling together a list of somewhat disparate names. I had hoped that by including the names of famous celebrities I was, somehow guaranteed, to get oodles of organic traffic to my blog.

Celebrities are NOT immune from MS

Obviously millions of people world-wide suffer from multiple sclerosis, but I thought it may be interesting to note which famous people or celebrities also suffer from multiple sclerosis.

The list below has been gleaned from a couple of other sites with lists of this sort, and they are far more comprehensive. I simply picked out the few names that I recognised and had some kind of meaning for me.

Although J.K. Rowling of Harry Potter fame does not suffer from multiple sclerosis, her late mother did. I believe that because of this Ms Rowling is now taking an active role with the MS Society in Great Britain, it may be the Scottish branch of the society and I am told that she is serving as chairman. But that is just hearsay. If I find out anything more definite, it will appear here.

Now, I wouldn’t be doing my job as a professional blogger correctly, if I didn’t leave with a little teaser link to spend a little more time on my Blog.

The only thing I will tell you about the teaser link is that it takes you to another post on this site, and it may be of interest to a visitor without Multiple Sclerosis.
