Not Just Surviving, but Thriving: MS Connection

"Working to ensure equity for marginal communities can take a toll on all of us, especially during this tumultuous time with the pandemic and living with an unpredictable neurological condition. Please stay active and engaged with your MS family and those communities you are part of by doing what you can, where you can, however you can. Remember to give yourself permission to rest, step away from toxic people and situations and take time to focus on yourself."

The National MS Society is here to end MS forever and ensure people affected by MS can live their best lives. Of the nearly 1 million people estimated to have MS in the United States, we have only connected with 540,000. That’s a clear signal we have more work to do to reach minority populations across our community.

Getting better is at the core of who we are as an organization.

Here are some of the things we are focusing on.

06/03/2020

We are outraged by the injustice and violence that led to the death of George Floyd and too many others in our country. This is not OK. Not today or any day.⠀

We realize that our heartbreak and anger are not enough. We must do better. We must do more.⠀

The National MS Society is committed to creating a world where everyone, of every race, can live a life free of MS and free of injustice and inequality.⠀

We recognize the effects of MS on the Black community are magnified by the inequities in our healthcare system. We will not be successful in finding the cure until we confront and address these inequities. The disparities that keep Black people from receiving today’s care must not keep them from receiving tomorrow’s cure. ⠀

We are a movement by and for people affected by MS. ⠀

We are listening. ⠀

We stand with you today and every day. ⠀

~ Cynthia Zagieboylo, President and CEO⠀

Dr. Ian Duncan received the 2020 John Dystel Prize for Multiple Sclerosis Research for his groundbreaking research on myelin (the protective nerve coating that is damaged in MS). He studies the development of myelin in the central nervous system (CNS), how myelin is injured in CNS disorders, particularly MS, and how myelin can be repaired.

My name is MarciaR. I'm the one on the left in the photo. I'm the Mom-Mom who was diagnosed with MS in 2011. Would any one be able to help me with some balance exercises during the Covid-19 quarantine? I would greatly appreciate it!!! ☺☺☺
If I signed up to do a walk but it was turned into a virtual walk does that sign us up for the virtual walk automatically or do we need to resign up?
Is the walk ms in long beach still happening? Ive been trying to get ahold of the coordinator havent had any luck by email or phone.
