1st Known MS Case Was Dutch!

1400:  the earliest written record of someone with MS was Lidwina of Schiedam, the Dutch patron saint of ice skaters.

This is incredible especially because my family heritage is 100% Dutch (minus that Polish bit) and have the passion of ice-skating.  My dad ice-skates nearly every week and my Amsterdammer aunt ice skates on the frozen waters of Holland during the winter months.  I am finding this all very strange.  First MS case:  Dutch.  My heritage:  Dutch.   Lidwina’s passion:  ice-skating. My family’s passion:  ice-skating.  Wild.    

Anyhoo, read Lidwina’s story here.  It’s pretty interesting:  Lidwina of Schiedam
