Aaron Solowoniuk is the drummer for Canadian Rock band Billy Talent. He was diagnosed with Relapsing Remitting MS in 1997. In 2006, he noticed a lack of services for younger people dealing with MSso he put together a charity concert called F.U.MS. “I just wanted to raise some money that could be used for some sort of youth program for the younger people dealing with MS”. This one concert led to many more charity events over the years and Aaron becoming the MS Youth Ambassador.
“The landscape for youth and MS has changed so much since 1997. I am so proud to have been a part of working with the MS Society of Canada to bring new programs and opportunitiesto the younger generation. But there is still so much work to be done”.
