LETTER: MS Awareness Week is March 8-14

Published 10:28 am Tuesday, March 9, 2010

I am one of millions of people who have joined the movement to end multiple sclerosis. I’m writing to ask your help in changing the lives of people like myself living with MS in this community.

Every hour, someone is diagnosed with MS. It is a chronic disease of the central nervous system for which there is no cure.

MS Awareness Week takes place March 8-14. I encourage people to join the movement to end MS and help people with MS move their lives forward.

Some simple things you can do include visiting www.nationalMSsociety.org to learn more about MS; tell 10 people that MS Awareness Week is March 8-14 and ask them to tell 10 people they know; sponsor a walker or cyclist in a Walk MS or Bike MS event, or participate yourself.

Progress on MS can’t wait. Move it during MS Awareness Week and move us closer to a world free of MS.
