Armand is affected by multiple sclerosis. It is a chronic disease of the central nervous system, thought to be an autoimmune disorder. Some individuals with MS may be mildly affected, while others may lose their ability to see clearly, write, speak, or walk when communication between the brain and other parts of the body becomes disrupted. Armand was diagnosed in his late teens and since that day has been slowly loosing control of parts of his body. After coming to terms with his diagnosis, he decided to fight back by participating in intense sports that have helped him regain control again some parts of his body and mind.
Armand is a true inspiration who reminds us of the power of the mind over the body. We look forward to sharing his one minute video portrait with you in the future.
