Kate’s Counterpane: An MS Journey

1 Comment

My friend, Kate Milliken, is one of the most dynamic young women I know.  She is beautiful, talented, energetic and the picture of health.  At least she was until 2006 when she was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  It was a life altering blow but also an opportunity.  Recognizing there was a story in her journey she created Kate’s Counterpane which is a series of short videos that chronicle the last few years as she battled her sickness and grew from the experience.  It is compelling, moving, inspiring and an ode to the people who carry us along the way and fall by the wayside when everything goes to hell in a handbasket.  Ultimately it is a story of great tenacity and triumph.  To me this is one of the best reality shows I’ve seen.  Gritty, honest, touching.  Kate’s Counterpane is really a gift to those who see it and to those facing adversity.
