Shockey is on Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a program to help low-income Americans who are disabled. The monthly payment is just over $700 a month.

“It’s my only income,” Shockey told CNNMoney in the fall, when we first met her in Waverly, a small town in southern Ohio that’s seen better days. “I couldn’t live” without it.

My MS Hero

July 4, 2018

I love this story about Kathleen Sheehan, who has MS and hasn’t let it stand in the way of adapting to a new type of job.  She is also my friend’s sister, which is how I came across this article.  I hope she inspires you too.
