What is MS?

Friend with MS

It’s Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week, March 11-17.

I bet you didn’t know, on average, living with MS costs that person $69,000/year. With the median income at $49,000 and MS putting most people out of work within 10 years (or less), there’s a great need to find a cure. And, at the very least we can influence progress enough to offer those with MS more than 8 disease-modifying options. Because, MS is very difference for each person who has it, and it varies throughout their life. Some modifications may work for a short time or not at all. For those who are debilitated due to the disease, a cure is at the heart of their hopes and dreams.

I personally have two friends with parents who have MS.
