    Default Opera Singer w MS

    Barbara Quintiliani has both MS and another rare auto-immune disease, Churg- Strauss Syndrome. This, she would stress is the least important thing about her.

    Here's a link to the Boston Sunday Globe front page article:

    You must register to read the whole thing and it is well worth the read- you'll love her attitude.

    Go Barbara!

    She's admirable! Thanks for posting this remarkable story.

    According to the article,

    A drug given to suppress the MS damaged Quintiliani’s ovaries, taking away their chance to have children.
    The drug isn't named. I didn't know any of the MS drugs could have that effect.

    It truly is a remarkable story and life that she has had to live.

    I wonder if it was one of the chemo drugs that damaged her ovaries - just don't know. Have not heard of that on here.

    Thanks for posting this Ann.

    You don't even have to like classical sopranos to appreciate this.

    Bravo, Ms. Quintiliani.
