Damian Washington

Multiple Sclerosis Patient Leader

I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis a few years ago and have been making content about the disease ever since. My weekly YouTube channel has 3,500 + engaged subscribers who've said I'm a breath of fresh air in the MS content space. I sit on Patient Advisory Boards and make content for MS Views & News. The National MS Society featured me in a few of their latest videos and I've run Shift.MS' Twitter Takeover a couple of times. I'm an actor who's done 30+ commercials for brands like Fruit Of the Loom, Realtor.com, and the NFL and have found that developing this MS community that's grown around me is the best way to share my light with the world. MS specialist Dr. Brandon Beaber, author of Resilience In The Face Of Multiple Sclerosis watches the channel and thought I could do a video for a MS focused parody he wrote to the tune the top ten Billboard hit "Roxanne" better than he could. Two months later Roxanne MS (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xOgcmSG7MOc) was released featuring other leaders in the MS community like Ardra Shepard, Dan & Jen Digmann, Dawn and Danna from Myelin & Melanin and got over 3,000 views.
