Staying Strong with Multiple Sclerosis & GI Disorders

Damarius Ingram

Live the best you can despite the hardships of life

Hi! I'm Damarius Ingram, and I live in Ohio. I always had an easy going life until I went blind in my right eye at the age of 14 years old. I went on to discover that I had Multiple Sclerosis, an autoimmune disease which has no cure.

Since becoming ill, I've developed more complications with my health. I now suffer from multiple Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders that doesn't allow my food to digest without extreme pain, so now I have a feeding tube and a gastric pacemaker in my abdomen.

Now at the age of 17, I am a senior in high school trying to live my life the best way I can despite the challenges that hold me back. The quote I live by that keeps me going is " I'm living my life the best I can for those who didn't get the chance to do so".
