I met Lars for the first time two years ago. He is the brother of a former colleague of mine and I met him at her 60th birthday party. Since then we have had many long and interesting conversations, sometimes from opposite sides of the world. All this time I have been intrigued by his thinking and how he handles his life being diagnosed with MS and confined to a wheelchair. His incredible ability to defy the diagnosis is so amazing that I want to share it with you.
