Episode 130: No Stress MS Creator Damian Washington

Overview

Damian Washington is an actor who’s done 30+ commercials for brands like Fruit of the Loom, Realtor.com, and the NFL. Originally hailing from NYC, he attended the prestigious LaGuardia High School for the Performing Arts (Fame, anyone?!). A few years ago, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS)…and soon discovered that developing an MS community is the best way to share his light with the world. Damian’s weekly YouTube channel has several thousand engaged subscribers; he sits on Genentech's Patient Advisory Board and the MS Focus Patient Advisory Group; and he makes content for MS Views & News. He’s also been featured by the National MS Society and Shift.MS. Damian was the winner of the WEGO Health Award for Best in Show: YouTube in 2020. Some say they find the silver lining in the dark MS cloud, but Damian says he’s turning poop into flowers…and that the engaged community that's developed out of his shares is one of the best things to come from this horrible disease.
