National MS Society Alabama-Mississippi Chapter

National MS Society Alabama-Mississippi Chapter Established in 1950, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Alabama-Mississippi Chapter proudly serves 6,900 in the states of Alabama and Mississippi affected by MS, including friends, family members, caregivers and professionals.

We provide many educational programs which help people who are touched by multiple sclerosis. We also are an informational resource, here to provide material to those who need information on symptoms, coping, communicating and assisting. We also work to promote community awareness of this neurological disease which affects more than 400,000 Americans. Members of the National MS Society Alabama-Mississippi Chapter receive our newsletter and mailings about programs, events and volunteer opportunities. Many of our programs and services are free or require nominal fees.

Mission: Every day we focus on our mission, to create a world free of multiple sclerosis, with our programs and funds generated from our special events and generous gifts from those who want to help us meet our mission. We also value the partnerships that develop with those who support us through events such as our John. N. Whitaker Memorial MS150 Bike Tour, Bike to the Battlefield Bike MS, Dinner of Champions, the Stand Against MS campaign, the MS Walk, and our clinic affiliations, and the outstanding volunteers that assist us each and every day.

“If MS can’t beat us, COVID doesn’t have a shot. This was already my normal. I was already making conscious decisions — like quarantining after travel, washing my hands religiously and having zoom meetings when I couldn’t go out — because I live with a chronic disease. I appreciate everything going virtual. It gives others a chance to see what it’s like to live with MS.” ~ Diane Kramer, diagnosed 2010, MS Activist / Keep Moving Forward Panelist

Cooking with multiple sclerosis isn’t always easy. There can be a lot of standing in a hot kitchen that can bring on MS symptoms. Chris Holland, three-time winner of the cooking competition show “Chopped,” offers up some tips for cooking with MS. BONUS! There’s a recipe, too. https://ntlms.org/2YYRlmT

"'You don’t look sick' is something that many people living with MS hear. Many of our symptoms are not visible for others to see and not every person with MS experiences the same symptoms. Some of my symptoms include daily fatigue, heavy legs, muscle weakness, pins and needles in different parts of my body, electric shocks in my back, hand and feet constantly falling asleep, headaches, cognitive impairment and more. Then there are new symptoms that come with new lesions. It’s important to know that not every person with a disability looks the same. You never know what someone is going through. People can be going through the worst of the worst and still look good during it all."

Heather Goodrich will be participating as part of Run A Myelin My Shoes and Cheryl Hile to Finish MS! On behalf of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, thank you!
God gives us just enough to handle and not anymore. Because God knows that we are strong and we can accomplish the goal where God got his eyes on us. Because God gives us freewill,we can do anything that's right; but sometime we take on more than what we can handle. So just take one step at a time no matter what.
From Color Street nail strips, I purchased Day by Day in last few months to show support for multiple sclerosis awareness. Proceeds raised went to NMSS and a couple other MS organizations.
