A Winnipeg playwright and actor suffering from multiple sclerosis is showing signs of vast improvement following having so-called liberation treatment in Costa Rica last week.
Debbie Patterson posted a video of herself Jan. 14 on Facebook showing her walking unaided back and forth in a room. In the video she has just a slight limp.
"I'm doing very, very well," said Patterson, who will return to Winnipeg Jan. 25.
She held a successful fundraiser on Jan. 7 to cover the $15,000 cost of her trip.
Patterson, 44, was diagnosed with MS 12 years ago. In the past year, the disease had progressed and she needed a cane to walk.
