Warrior: Jarrod Schlipf
AI: Multiple Sclerosis
HSCT: November 2014
How much effort/time/money has been spent battling autoimmune disease? What is your contribution to the outcomes you are seeking? How committed are you to making time to build habits that nourish your mind, body and soul?
Tracing his 17 year experience with MS to an auto accident that injured his neck, Jarrod continues to find improvements post-HSCT through reducing a majority of his stress, finding the importance of sleeping and rest, and committing to movement and exercise.
Jarrod’s message that “You get out of HSCT… what you put into HSCT” inspires shifts in thinking and movement of both the mind and body. Recognizing the challenges that he might still face through ongoing recovery, by embracing a positive mindset and gratitude Jarrod is able to find patience and space to focus on getting better and living his second chance at life.
