JKR Speaks of Multiple Sclerosis in "Your Total Health" Feature

J.K. Rowling

The nationally syndicated Saturday morning program “Your Total Health” featured a segment on this past weekend’s show discussing the subject of Multiple Sclerosis, which included comments from author J. K. Rowling. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease Jo has spoken very movingly of in the past, relating its effect on her mother, and how her untimely death from it impacted her early writing of the Harry Potter series. This video features clips of Jo speaking on that subject, her efforts to raise awareness of MS, and of her seventeen year journey with Harry Potter.

TLC Reader Beth was able to capture this moving segment with Jo, which features some clips from the Meredith Viera “Today Show” interview broadcast last July, and upload the video online. You can view this segment here via YouTube.

Many thanks Beth!
