Chris Anselmo is 27 years old and living in Boston, Mass. Chris has been battling Miyoshi Myopathy since he was first diagnosed at age 17; he began experiencing symptoms at age 22. He is a 2008 graduate of Northeastern University and is currently a senior analyst at a video analytics company in downtown Boston.
After years of struggling and wondering how to cope with the steady progression of the disease, Chris has found hope and satisfaction in sharing his story with others, and helping to spread awareness about this rare form of muscular dystrophy. In his spare time, Chris loves writing, hanging out with friends and enjoying all Boston has to offer. He also is an obsessive fan of the Boston Red Sox and University of Connecticut basketball.
Chris also regularly contributes to the MDA Transition Center blogs.
