"Amadou and Bettina Touré are both architects. Amadou's father came from Mali and his mother from Lorraine, in Northern France. They moved to Freiburg, Germany, about 15 years ago. Amadou lives with MS and had to stop working. He is a cultured person who reads a lot, loves music and beauty in all forms. So is his wife. They are dealing with Amadou's disease with calm, courage and intelligence. I had the privilege to be a witness to their life for a few days, learning how a disease like MS impacts people beyond the obvious physical challenges. There are facets and consequences of MS that are often ignored, but they need to be explained in order to understand the depth of their impact on both the material and the spiritual lives of the people affected."
