Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. The cause of MS is still unknown–scientists believe the disease is triggered by as-yet-unidentified environmental factor(s) in a person who is genetically predisposed to respond. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. That's why this cause is so important to people in this age group - it's why your support is so important as well. Every dollar we raise brings us a little bit closer to a world free of MS.
The National MS Society mobilizes people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS.
The Society educates, inspires and empowers those affected by multiple sclerosis. We break down barriers—both physical and emotional—in the home, in the workplace and in the community. We build confidence that people with MS can live the best possible lives as individuals, as family members, as employees and as members of the larger community. No other local MS organization provides the breadth and depth of services or involves more people in the movement toward a world free of MS.
