Just over a decade ago, Cammie L. was very active—playing sports and enjoying life. But it changed almost overnight, when she was diagnosed with an aggressive form of multiple sclerosis. M.S., according to the Mayo Clinic, is an autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system, and for Cammie, only 28 at the time, it was absolutely devastating.
“Within a week, I couldn’t lift my leg. I couldn’t walk. They told me I would get to a point where my husband wouldn’t be able to take care of me anymore—that I wouldn’t be able to be around my kids.”
As her condition worsened, Cammie couldn’t take care of herself or her kids. Chemotherapy slowed her digestion to a halt, and she virtually stopped eating. She felt like a burden on her family, and slipped into depression.
“It got so bad that I thought they would be better off without me, because I was such a burden to them.”
But a slow change took place when Cammie’s husband Dan got involved with Beachbody®. He started P90X® and so did their three boys. Cammie wanted in.
“I wanted to start working out so that I could be the wife and the mom that my kids and my husband deserved. . . . I wanted to prove to myself that my disease does not define who I am or what I can do.”
