Joanne Tulloch

Joanne Tulloch Spirit Award 2012Joanne was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis 30 years ago. She felt there was a great need for a support group for people newly diagnosed with MS and those that were living with the disease and needed ongoing support. She organized and acted as a support group facilitator for the last 20 years. She connects newly diagnosed patients with mentors and organizes speakers for the monthly meetings and generally helps you feel welcomed.  She has approached various speakers from doctors to pharmacists to nurses with an interest in MS to speak to her group. Joanne is the go-to person to find answers about drugs and lifestyle changes, as well as living with the disease.  She has also organized teleconferences of guest speakers to help MS groups in Dryden and Kenora.  She keeps her group updated on the latest information on drugs and procedures. Joanne is still giving 100% to the MS Society to help beat this disease.
