Country crooner Clay Walker battles MS with wife by his side
Twenty years ago, country star Clay Walker was playing basketball with friends while on tour in Canada when he started feeling sick. He couldn’t keep his balance, was having trouble seeing and had numbness in his extremities. While he jokes that his original thoughts were that he had too much wine the night before, the reality was much more serious. Walker was suffering from symptoms of multiple sclerosis (MS), a chronic, incurable disease that attacks the central nervous system.
