By Aaron Humes: Performer Marlyn Vansen has announced that she has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Vansen asks for help to get the drugs she needs to control the disease, which is not curable.

The mother-of-one says she was diagnosed on January 8. Multiple sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that attacks nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord. It causes seizures and convulsions, extreme fatigue, loss of limb movement, and blurred vision, among others.

Vansen explains: “The problem I’m facing is that the drugs I need are not currently available in Belize and to make things right [worse], it’s really expensive. For every day that I don’t take the medicine, I fear that my situation will only get worse [worse].”

She adds that with the support of her family, God and others, she will continue to battle the disease for the rest of her life and hopefully emerge victorious.

Vansen last year turned down a record deal with Universal Music arranged by Moses “Shyne” Barrow.

Those wishing to contribute can do so at Heritage Bank in the name of Vansen, account number 1213301.

You can contact the family at the following numbers: Vansen’s husband, Ashton Wagner, at 614-4232; his brother David at 614-5123; or his mother Marcella at 614-3723.

Here at Breaking Belize News (BBN), we send our best wishes to Vansen in his unexpected fight.
