We’re Dawn (living in GA) and Daana (living in WI) — two dynamic women with Multiple Sclerosis, sharing our musings on life, MS and everything in between. We’re taking it day by day, and trying to live our best lives.

Myelin and Melanin?! Myelin is the protective shield that covers nerves in the central nervous system. When it’s damaged it forms scar tissue or sclerosis, which gives MS its name. Melanin is the protective shield that brings us our magic.

Welcome to Myelin and Melanin. Reach out and connect with us. We’d love to hear from you. We can be reached on social media @myelinmelanin or e-mail at myelinandmelanin@gmail.com.

*Myelin & Melanin was featured in the Winter 2019/2020 issue (page 25) of the National MS Society’s Momentum Magazine as an MS podcast to listen to. Check us out!
