I flew out of LAX on Sunday June 24th at 11 pm. Now I have done some traveling in the past.

Unfortunately up to this point there is no cure for MS, but there is a need for ease of information that is essential for the doctor to know how the patient is doing and how the treatment is going. Such as how they are feeling, are their basic tasks enjoyable or painful, have they taken their medication, and to see a progress report of all their activity over an extended amount of time.
