Jefferson resident pressing forward with rare disorder

By Vanessa Tyson

Jefferson resident Dedra Chanta Ellis was diagnosed with neuromyelitis optica, a rare disorder similar to multiple sclerosis, in 2009.
Since that time, Ellis has had problems with mobility and depends upon a wheelchair or a rollator to get around.
A 1987 graduate of Central High, Ellis said she was on a cruise to the Bahamas when she first realized something was not right with her.
“I just started falling and had to sit down until I could get back up myself,” Ellis recalled. “I was irritable and had a lot of fatigue and no appetite.”
