A well-known and popular musician, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis six years ago, is fighting back to release her original album, New Shoes for Nashville.

Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a long-lasting disease that can affect the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. It can cause problems with vision, balance, muscle control, and other basic body functions.

“Help me from zero to hero with a turnaround”, Hayley concluded.
