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. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.
About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society
MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. We help each person address the challenges of living with MS. In 2011, the Society invested nearly $40 million in more than 325 research projects around the world and drug development investments by our Fast Forward subsidiary. We offered an extensive variety of programs, services and resources for people living with MS and their family members, care partners and other members of their support systems. Nearly 455,000 individuals joined together at events like Walk MS, Bike MS and Golf MS, raising more than $164 million. Thousands of volunteers across the nation served as community leaders, ambassadors and champions to support and serve people living with MS.
