WHY WE WALK
Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops people from moving. Every
hour in the United States, someone is newly diagnosed with MS, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the
central nervous system. Your fund-raising efforts support cutting-edge research and services that address the daily
challenges of living with MS and may one day lead to a cure. 81 cents of every dollar spent goes directly towards
research and services to benefit families with MS.
MS stops people from moving. The National MS Society exists to make sure it doesn’t. We support more MS research,
offer more services for people with MS, provide more professional education programs and further more MS advocacy
efforts that any other MS organization in the world. The Lone Star Chapter is part of a 50-state network of chapters and
serves an estimated 20,000 individuals with MS and their families.
Studies show that early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can reduce future disease activity and
improve quality of life for many people with multiple sclerosis. Talk to your health care professional, and contact the
National MS Society at www.nationalmssociety.org or 1-800-344-4867 to learn about ways to help manage multiple
sclerosis and about current research that may one day reveal a cure.
