BENEFITING: National Multiple Sclerosis Society
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.
I didn't really know that much about this disease until one of my best friends was diagnosed with MS a few years ago. Every year, I walk with her at the MS Walk in Little Rock, AR. I have raised money for her cause but not alot. I am hoping that I can do my part and help raise money to find a cure. Please help my cause by donating any amount.
