A Good Cause, World MS Day

 Today is World Multiple Sclerosis Day. It is a cause that I believe doesn't get much attention and it is one that is close to my heart, because I was diagnosed with MS 2 years ago. It has impacted our lives greatly and I try to bring awareness to others.  If anyone is interested in donating or looking into it here is the link....

It is actually really common and effects millions of lives. I appreciate everyone reading this and any help the National MS Society gets! orange ribbon

thanks for the link, my mom was adopted and we just learned that her biological family has a family history of MS.  so this info is very useful

 Well the good news for you it is actually not genetic! I was worried about that for my son, they originally thought that there was a link to genes, but it has recently been dismissed!

 its awesome to see a mom with ms who is upbeat on the topic... with all of the symptoms and medications it can be overwhelming and sometimes aggrivating... my mother was diagnosed with ms fourteen years ago this july, and it truely is an overlooked illness... thank you for this post :)
