JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - While most fourteen year old girls are concerned with what they'll be wearing to school the next day, Casey Hollis was concerned about her eye sight. After a trip to the eye doctor, Casey's life changed forever.

"It was really scary when the eye doctor said she could have a brain tumor," said Casey's Mother, Toni Weber.

Luckily, it wasn't a brain tumor but for the next four years Casey would have to undergo a number of doctor visits.

 "For four years it was just test, after test, after test," said Casey Hollis.

After waiting for four years to finally find out what was wrong, Casey was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in November.

"It's been an emotional roller coaster. I've had my moments where I've been happy and then I'll get kind of angry wondering why me," Hollis said.

As for her family and friends, they could not be more proud of how positive Casey has been throughout the entire process.

"After the diagnosis she was very tearful but she's been so positive ever since she decided that this is something that God has intended for her life to help with MS," Weber said.

Every day is a struggle for Casey but she keeps her head held high and plans to become an RN for people with MS.

"Don't let it stop you. I mean it's not one of those that's going to kill you in the long run, it's just going to damper your life a little bit. As long as you keep active and have a good support system you'll make it," said Hollis.

There will be a MS walk in Downtown Jonesboro, April 27th at 10am. If you would like to register please visit http://www.nationalmssociety.org .
