My name is Jonathan Messerli, I was born on June 19th, 1972.
My favourite sport is football (soccer), but I also like other sports such as ice hockey, tennis, and track and field. I also enjoy watching films and listening to music.
Additionally, I like to be well informed on current events, so I read the newspaper every day!
Illness - a spinal cord disease
FA is a progressive disease, which means it will only worsen with time.
I have two brothers, unfortunately they were also born with FA. The older one has already passed away due to the disease and its impact. The younger one currently lives in Bern in a shared apartment with disability support.
