What is Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis 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.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is a free non-profit organization that has made its mission to help bring an end to such a horrific disease. The MS Society continues to do this by educating, sponsoring, and offering supportive services to those in need and their family members. The MS Society is also equipped with an array of resources to assist individuals in varying ways. The MSS is also known for sponsoring many of the walks in our community.
The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America is a non-profit agency that provides individuals who are diagnosed with free resources and programs.
The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation is an organization that offers grants, programs, and support groups for individuals who need financial support and may not have it from their families.
The Multiple Sclerosis Focus is an organization that sends out quarterly magazines on various topics that are important to individuals with MS. It is also a great resource for family members and occasionally children of those affected.
