Fully Living: Meet The Living Center’s Doug Witwicky

JACKSON, WY— Doug Witwicky has built a life around adventure—one that even Multiple Sclerosis can’t slow down.

Witwicky, a 66-year-old resident of St. John’s Living Center, spent a full day hunting on Pape Ranch in Daniel, Wyoming on October 2, where he successfully shot and tagged a pronghorn antelope.

Witwicky has hunted his entire life—his room at the Living Center is adorned with skins and mounts of previous exploits—but it doesn’t come as easily as it once did. Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that affects the central nervous system over time, has eroded Witwicky’s mobility and speech, and confined him to a wheelchair. Still, he seeks out every opportunity he can to hunt.

When you have multiple sclerosis you learn to adapt that way many times you can continue doing what you like to do.

Bladder Dysfunction – Condition that happens with Multiple Sclerosis when the disease damages the portion of the central nervous system that controls bladder muscles and urinary sphincters. The results can range from increased frequency and urgency to urinate, incontinence (bladder leakage) to the inability to completely empty the bladder.

Each person’s path with MS is unique, as a result not everyone with Multiple Sclerosis will have this medical condition.
