Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign released a web video in which Romney’s wife Ann and her sons discuss her battle with multiple sclerosis. The video, “Soul Mate” was released on World Multiple Sclerosis Day and outlines the personal journey the Romney’s faced as they dealt as a family with Ann Romney’s MS diagnosis in the mid-1990s.
Mitt Romney described Ann as his “soul mate” in the video. It features clips from a Fox News Sunday interview where Romney described his wife’s diagnosis with MS as the “toughest time in my life.”
“He really stepped up,” said Tagg Romney of his father’s actions during that trying time.
“I’m happy in life as long as I’ve got my soul mate with me,” Romney concludes.
Ann Romney has been speaking publically about her MS and breast cancer diagnoses. In early May, Ann Romney spoke at length about her cancer which was caught at “stage zero” and required radiation therapy to overcome.
The video closes with a link to a donation page where viewers can contribute to National MS Society.
