Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision.Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease; however there is currently NO CURE.
This entire week will be dedicated to getting the word out about MS and helping put a stop to this terrible disease. Come visit our table in Kirkhof everyday from 11am-6pm and find out more ways to help.
