6. Jamie Lynn Sigler
Jamie Lynn Sigler is an American actress and singer. She was diagnosed with MS in 2002, at the age of 19. For over 15 years, she kept her diagnosis to herself, even outside of work. It was her 2-year-old son, Beau, that gave her the courage to open up and the strength to be honest about her condition. Sigler has been inspired to raise awareness on MS and hopes that by sharing her experiences, she can help to shed light on the disease.
“Things are manageable now. It takes a fighting attitude to deal with all this. This disease can absolutely take over your life if you let it” said Sigler.
