The mission of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is to end the devastating effects of MS.
WHAT IS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS?
MS is one of the most common diseases of the nervous system, afflicting people of all ages around the world, although it has a special preference for young people, especially women, and for those who grew up in northern latitudes.
The National Multiple Sclerosis Society believes that MS involves a genetic susceptibility, but it is not directly inherited. It usually causes sudden neurologic symptoms including vision loss, paralysis, numbness, and walking difficulties. The symptoms can be diverse and confusing, often coming and going without any pattern, making it difficult to diagnose, even today.
Vero Beach/Indian River County are part of the Mid-Florida chapter with offices in Orlando.
