    Default Bride, born with MS, dances at own wedding though she uses a wheelchair

    This story from "Inside Edition" (NBC News) is about a woman born with MS (unusual?) who uses a wheelchair, and yet she danced at her own wedding. Not sure quite how she did it but there are photos:

    I wonder if the reporter mixed up MS with CP since people constantly mistake my CP for MS and CP is often something you are born with. Thanks.

    I looked a bit further because I was wondering about the group she belongs to--Free Wheelin'. I didn't find out any more about the group. But when I looked at this link and the video I found out that the woman is in the UK. She was born with spinal damage at birth and later diagnosed with MS, or at least that's how it sounds to me from what she says in the video.

    No kidding. I know a woman who lost the ability to walk because of the UK system.

    The woman and the others in the group seem to be having a very good time dancing. Working quite a few muscles that way, no doubt.
