Curb Free with Cory Lee: SHARING THE WORLD FROM A WHEELCHAIR USER’S PERSPECTIVE
Welcome to my travel blog, Curb Free with Cory Lee. Here on the site, I hope to share my experiences as a disabled traveler with you and many tips as well. Have you ever wondered:
How can I fly as a wheelchair user?
Which hotels are the most accessible?
What beaches have powered beach wheelchairs?
How do I charge my wheelchair in a foreign country?
What cities are the most wheelchair friendly around the world?
If any of these thoughts have ever crossed your mind, you’re in the right place. On Curb Free with Cory Lee, my goal is to show you how to travel, where to travel, and most importantly, why travel as a person with a disability.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system).
In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause permanent damage or deterioration of the nerves.
Signs and symptoms of MS vary widely and depend on the amount of nerve damage and which nerves are affected. Some people with severe MS may lose the ability to walk independently or at all, while others may experience long periods of remission without any new symptoms.
There’s no cure for multiple sclerosis. However, treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.
