About Multiple Sclerosis:
Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and it stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.5 million worldwide.
About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society:
The Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the National MS Society assists over 4,000 people with multiple sclerosis, their families, caregivers and health care professionals by providing emergency care, wellness programs and advocacy efforts throughout North Carolina. If you or someone you know has MS, please contact the National Multiple Sclerosis Society today at www.nationalmssociety.org or 1-800-FIGHT-MS to learn about ways to help manage multiple sclerosis and about current research that may one day reveal a cure.
