Frank Poe, author of "Raven Wings", shares his perspective and inspiring journey as a champion in the fight against Multiple Sclerosis. Going blind and nearly dying from the disease in October of 1996, Frank battled back from bed ridden, wheelchair, walker to cane, and has regained his vision in one eye. "I believe living with a positive attitude produces results, and I'm alive today because of it."
Frank wants people to know that having or being diagnosed with a disability doesn't mean your life is over and you lost your value. You can still decide to do as much as you possibly can, regardless, and service to others is a great way to start. With over 15 years of experience as a journalist, Frank pledges 6% of his book royalties to three MS charities.
Recently Frank was one of three authors featured in an article on the therapeutic benefits of writing in the Multiple Sclerosis Association of America's magazine, The Motivator, for Winter/Spring 2012 in the Health and Wellness section.
