Episode 97: The Power of the Bike with Mike Zimits & Cat Tsigakos

Publication date: Jul 08, 2019

My guests this week are 2 exceptional MS warriors, Mike Zimits and Cat Tsigakos. When Mike was diagnosed with MS, he decided he could best help himself by getting into shape, so he got on a bike. And then he convinced his friend’s sister, Catherine, to get on a bike. Cat was serving as her brother’s caregiver after he was diagnosed with progressive MS. So these 2 people, who had each been affected differently by MS, went from being biking newbies to avid cyclists — even taking on several stages of the Tour de France. They also raised more than one million dollars for MS research while reminding the world that having an MS diagnosis doesn’t mean that you’re no longer entitled to have hopes, dreams, and goals. We’re also taking a look back at this year’s World MS Day, and talking about some of the 400 events that raised awareness about MS in 79 countries. We’ll tell you about the MS stem cell research that’s about to begin on the International Space Station. We’ll review the outcome of a specific rehab treatment that’s been shown to improve hand and upper limb ability among people living with MS. We’ll let you know how you can participate in an important MS rehabilitation clinical trial. And we’ll tell you about a research study that looked at the economic burden faced by people living with a minimal level of MS disability. The results might surprise you! We have a lot to talk about.
