Timmy’s Journey to Understanding MS Timmy’s Journey to Understanding MS

Timmy’s Journey to Understanding MS is an animated cartoon that shares a little boy’s (Timmy) adventure learning about MS. David Lander is the voice of Captain S’myelin, who is Timmy’s guide on his journey. The cartoon is an excellent resource to talk to children about MS.
