ATC on Living With MS

In 2003, Leo Katsetos, MS, ATC, LAT, Senior Associate Athletic Director for Athletic Training and Head Athletic Trainer at Sacred Heart University, was given the news that he had multiple sclerosis, a disease that attacks the central nervous system. Since his diagnosis, Katsetos has worked diligently to create awareness about MS and to help others with the condition live better, fuller lives. Recently, Katsetos shared his story with a video production crew.

Featured on the health and wellness Web site, www.everydayhealth.com in a section called “People Living With MS,” the video documents Katsetos’s experience with the disease and how he has overcome various physical obstacles. He also talks about his work to fund-raise to find a cure for MS. For the past seven years, Katsetos has hosted the “Sacred Hearts for HOPE” MS walk in Westport, Conn., raising more than $130,000. Sunday, April 21, will mark the event’s eighth year.

An avid road race and triathlon participant, Katsetos told StamfordPlus.com that living a healthy and active lifestyle is paramount for his battle with the disease.

“I have MS,” Katsetos said, “but it doesn’t have me. I have far exceeded anything MS has presented to me.”
