Garden City couple won't let MS get in the way of their romance

On Monday, Dec. 18, 2017, longtime married couple Mark and Susan Quigley of Garden City talked about how they first connected 26 years ago during a charity bike race in Manhattan in 1991 for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Back then, Susan was riding for her mother, who had the neurological disorder that disrupts the flow of information from the brain and can cause numbness or weakness in the limbs, vision loss, tremors and slurred speech. A quarter-century later, they ride for Susan, who was diagnosed in 2008 with MS. A chance meeting led to a lifetime together. (Credit: Newsday / Yeong-Ung Yang)
