Jason Da Silva: Imitating Life
Jason Da Silva was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis when he was just 25 years old. Jason is a filmmaker and was enjoying making documentaries and traveling the world prior to being diagnosed. Although, he has had to learn to make adjustments to continue pursuing his passion, he has not given up. Since being diagnosed, he has turned the camera on himself to allow viewers to get a glimpse into his daily life. His documentaries are stories that show triumph over tragedy.
Jason is now married, has a child and continues to pursue his dreams. He has also created an app called axsmap to help people who are handicapped navigate the world around them.
In this episode with Jason, he provides encouraging messages to people going through difficulties. He says, “I think the biggest thing is that people should, if they are going through a challenge, big or small be it MS or otherwise, just know there is a light at the end of the tunnel…” Jason is truly an inspiration.
