About Multiple Sclerosis:
Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and
it stops people from moving. Every hour in the United States, someone is newly
diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous
system. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The
progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be
predicted but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world
free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with
more than twice as many women as men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects
more than 2.5 million worldwide.

About the National Multiple Sclerosis Society:
The Eastern North Carolina Chapter of the National MS Society assists over 4,000
people with multiple sclerosis, their families, caregivers and health care
professionals by providing emergency care, wellness programs and advocacy efforts
throughout North Carolina. If you or someone you know has MS, please contact the
National Multiple Sclerosis Society today at or

current research that may one day reveal a cure.
