CANO’s Writer of the Month for June is Mona Sen.

Mona Sen was born in Asansol, West Bengal India in 1965. Her father was a Bengali and mother is American. She lived in India as a young person, completed her junior high, and also lived in Jakarta, Indonesia and the United States. Mona attributes her affinity for language because of multiple languages in her household. Her life has been shaped by an early diagnosis of multiple sclerosis (MS) in 1986 at the age of twenty. Mona completed her undergraduate work in psychology at Wells College in Aurora, New York and a master of science in occupational therapy at the Washington University school of medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. Due to the worsening MS and accompanying hardship, she made the decision not to pursue a career but to educate others in the unforgiving challenges of MS. While in St. Louis Mona completed her clinical work at the MS Society and is currently an active support group leader in her area of upstate New York where she has given numerous talks and presentations. She currently lives in beautiful upstate New York with her partner of two decades, David in a glorious and tranquil healing environment.
