About Joanna Bender

Your Coach, Joanna Bender

Since my Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis in 1992, I've overcome many obstacles you may be facing right now. Successful living with MS is a challenge and it is here for you. 

Her Story

Joanna is not one to be held back, and MS has been yet another place in her life where she has pushed forward.  We’ve got a lot of numbers in the Red Room, but sometimes there’s not an obvious metric for “badass.”  Joanna dedicates her story to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, which supports more MS research, offers more services for people with MS, provides more professional education programs and furthers more MS advocacy efforts than any other MS organization in the world.
