Minnesota Wild’s Josh Harding Featured on People.com; Talks About Battle With MS

Minnesota Wild goalie Josh Harding was recently featured on People.com, where he spoke about his battle with multiple sclerosis (MS).  MS, an autoimmune disease, causes damage to the brain and the spinal cord, affecting balance, vision, sensations (i.e. numbness), and loss of muscle control.  Harding has been honest and open about his struggles with MS, and his diagnosis, which came in the fall of 2012. The 29-year-old is determined to raise awareness for MS, and has launched a foundation, Harding’s Hope, to support people with this disease.  To find out how to help, visit Harding’s Hope.  Here’s a link to the People.com story as well as link to a great story on Sports Illustrated about Harding and several other NHLers who have overcome health problems and raised awareness for a good cause.
