MS Walk in Viera
Feb 28, 2013 08:45PM
The MS Walk will be held 9am on March 16th at The Church of Viera. The money raised in the MS Walk stays in Central Florida and helps individuals and families affected by Multiple Sclerosis through grants for medical supplies, therapy, summer camps, and counselors.
Multiple Sclerosis is a difficult disease to diagnose and/or treat. MS is an autoimmune disease that attacks the nervous system, which in turn can attack anywhere or everywhere in the body. Rarely do two MS patients have the exact same symptoms. “Multiple Sclerosis can affect the individual in many different ways,” say MS sufferer Brenda Schmidt. “The only proven test to diagnose MS, where there is no doubt, is an autopsy of the brain. There are few treatments for MS, all are expensive.”
To help you can donate online or at the walk, volunteer, and/or donate items for the fundraising auctions and raffles.
