HAL KETCHUM: I HAVE MS

Veteran Country star Hal Ketchum has revealed that he has the neurological disease Multiple Sclerosis.

Ketchum was diagnosed with MS, which currently has no cure, last year but has taken his time telling the public, although he says that "The more people I tell, the better I feel about it."

Ketchum says that if he gets too tired he has problems with his vision and speech and has had to stop playing the guitar in concert due to the illness.

To help fight the disease, his doctor advised injections three times a week.

Hal isn't letting his condition get him down -- in fact, it has helped him re-organize his priorities.

"Things that used to be huge are really not huge. There's only a couple 'huge' things," he said.
