About Eliz Martin

Eliz Martin has a Bachelor of Arts in Legal Studies and an MBA from Franciscan University. She previously worked in business development within the technology industry. After an abrupt diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis, Eliz changed focus to disability advocacy, specifically to living a great life despite a chronic disease diagnosis. 

History with the condition

Eliz was diagnosed with relapsing remitting Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 26 in 2012. She has fought against the disease as it’s taken her speech, her eyesight, dexterity, mobility, and much more. Relearning to walk after a year in a wheelchair has been her most gratifying achievement and her biggest “I’m the boss” to MS. Though now fighting Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS), Eliz hopes that sharing her trials and journeys shows others that a full life can be lived even if limited. 

On her blog she shares and encourages others to become warriors in the fight, while also serving up realness, humour, and lots of dog photos. She enjoys cycling and spending time with family, friends, and puppies.
