Mads Tobias Hansen
Mads Tobias Hansen, 36, lives in Copenhagen and was diagnosed with MS in 2008 after he started dropping his tools and losing his balance two years before.
He said sailing gives him "peace and experiences in nature" and when asked what he is most looking forward to about the voyage, he said: "Stepping off for the last time and looking back at a job well done."
Mads has sailed with Oceans of Hope before from Copenhagen to Kiel in June 2014. He helped with logistics, provisioning and preparing the boat for departure in Copenhagen and after his return from Kiel he took the initiative to set up 'the Selection Committee' and 'Friends of Oceans of Hope' allowing others than MS crewmembers to be an active part of the project.
