As a personal fitness trainer and a health therapist coach, Christina Aivazoglou ate, breathed and slept nutrition – that is, until August 16, 2006, when she was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis. Within just eight years, she has watched her body rapidly deteriorate.
The documentary “A Dream to Walk. A Fight to Live” by Ranya Aivazoglou chronicles the life of Christina Aivazoglou as she battles MS – a crippling disease that has changed both her and her family’s life forever. Despite ten failed treatments, depression and isolation from the world, she continues to fight because one day she walk again.
Ranya Aivazoglou is a double major in Finance and Broadcast Journalism, minor in French at New York University. She was elected amongst eight other students for the Advanced TV Reporting Honors Class with Professor Jason Samuels, a current HBO ESPN Producer.
Rayna has taken it a step further and has partnered with gofundme.com to raise funds for Multiple Sclerosis research.
