Show your support during MS Education and Awareness Month
If you’ve ever known someone living with Multiple Sclerosis, you know how much the disease affects them day in and day out. If you’ve never met someone with MS or don’t even know what it is, now is the time to educate yourself during MS Education and Awareness Month.
The Multople Sclerosis Association of America defines MS as “a disease of the central nervous system” that “damages the protective insulation (known as ‘myelin’) surrounding the nerves, and may also damage these nerves within the central nervous system.Â As a result, nerve impulses carrying messages from the brain and spinal cord may short circuit, causing reduced or lost bodily function.”
It is estimated that 400,000 people in the USA have been diagnosed with MS with an additional 10,000 additional cases diagnosed annually.Â Those who are diagnosed may experience their first symptoms between the ages of 15 and 50.Â Women are also three times as likely to develop this disease than men.
It’s my hope that you’ll take some time this month to learn more about Multiple Sclerosis and how you can help those in your community bravely living with the disease.
