Rondeaus' Holiday Event Benefits MS Research

Rondeaus' Holiday Event Benefits MS Research

Michelle Rondeau and Maria Houtchens, MD

At their annual holiday party last year, Michelle and Chris Rondeau encouraged all guests to make a gift to the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The Rondeaus matched every gift made, and their event raised a total of $100,000 for multiple sclerosis (MS) research.

Michelle, who has MS, is grateful to her physician, Maria Houtchens, MD, for her care and for safely guiding her through four pregnancies.

As a member of the Advisory Board for the Ann Romney Center for Neurologic Diseases, Michelle says she and Chris have been pleased to support Houtchens’ research since 2015. Their latest gift is sustaining a long-term study of pregnant women with MS and their babies.
