MASON CITY, Iowa - Krystal Fisher would tell you she's a pretty strong individual.
“I guess my biggest thing is learning to be more patient. I cannot control it. I will never be able to control this. That’s where I take the role for him picking up for him when he can't,” Fisher said.
Married for three years come September, Fisher says she and her husband Tyce live every day moment by moment, but time stopped for her at one point when she started to notice a change in the man she loves who is living with MS.
Saturday in Mason City starting at 10 a.m. people are asked to meet at the Southbridge Mall for this year's MS Walk.
“His first symptoms were numbness in his legs and vision,” Fisher said.
Fisher says it was last year when the symptoms started. Tyce was later diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
“We've been lucky. We've had a whole year with no relapses, and that is huge. The general lack of control gives me anxiety a lot, but to him not have a relapse makes the whole experience of the year of panic good because that means the medication is working,” Fisher said.
Fisher is sharing their story to discuss how important it is to support the ones you love, and she admits sometimes it's hard.
She’s asking anyone who can to walk to be by her family's side and show their support Saturday.
“The MS walk means that they are raising money for a cure, and we desperately need a cure and the walk to me is we are one step closer to a cure and that's one step closer to moving on with our lives,” Fisher said.
Rochester's MS walk is May 5th at 10 a.m. at Soldier’s Field Veterans Memorial Park.
