In 2007, the National MS Society’s branding campaign was implemented,
challenging everyone across the nation to Join the Movement. Throughout the
year, we’ve seen this challenge met by so many people within our Chapter’s
community. They’ve proven that activism can take many forms and that each person in his or her
own way can make a difference.

We’ve seen activism in those who organize support groups; in those who push their bodies and
minds to better adapt to the effects of their MS; in mothers who tirelessly raise funds to find a
cure and in people with MS who make it their mission to educate the public about the need for
research. These are just a few of the activists that make the Mid Florida Chapter proud of the
work we do and more committed than ever to end the devastating effects of MS.

You’ll read about some of these activists in this annual report. You’ll also learn about the
Chapter’s expansions in programs and services, made in part because of findings in a needs
assessment process.

Advocacy has become a stronger focus for the Chapter this year, as we joined with the North and
South Florida Chapters to staff a full-time Director of Public Policy for the National MS Society
of Florida. This will provide a much-needed link between government and the MS community to
affect public policy.

Despite a slowing economy, the Chapter saw revenues of over $2.6 million. We were able to
earmark more than $500,000 to fund MS research. Our every effort is made possible by the
volunteers who support the Chapter’s mission with their time and talents. They embody the
spirit of activism and their contributions are appreciated.

We urge you to join them. Take up the mantle of activism to help find a cure for MS.

Warmest Regards,

Tami Caesar                  Mark Mohler

    Every hour of every day, someone new is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. MS is a chronic, often
    disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system. Its progression, severity and specific
    symptoms cannot be foreseen. It is a disease that can erode a person’s abilities and hopes, halt a
    career and unravel the fabric of families.

    The National MS Society supports more MS research and serves more people with MS than any
    other national voluntary organization in the world. Since its inception, the Society has supported
    over $520 million in the world’s most promising MS research. This has led to safe and effective
    therapies, improved quality of life and enhanced understanding of the disease and its course.

    The Mid Florida Chapter serves almost 10,000 individuals diagnosed with MS and over 73,000
    people when including family members, friends, employers and caregivers in a 23-county area.

    National MS Society Strategic Response
    • We are a driving force of MS research, relentlessly pursing prevention treatment and cure.
    • We address the challenges of each person whose life is affected by MS.
    • We mobilize the talents and resources of the millions of people who want to
     do something about MS NOW!
    • We will raise a total of $1.25 billion by the end of 2010 to move closer to a world free of MS.
    • We are activists!

    Mid Florida Chapter Strategic Goals
    • Increase the Mid Florida Chapter’s gross revenue from $ 2 million to $3 million.
    • Provide equal access to high-quality programs and services that meet the needs of
     people living with MS throughout the Chapter territory.
    • Develop and implement a comprehensive communications, marketing and public
     relations plan that will increase awareness for all Chapter activities.
    • Identify, recruit and engage strong corporate and community leaders to help
     achieve the strategic response.
    • Raise $250,000 for the Promise 2010 Campaign.

                                                                          “ I GET
Beth Cohen is relentless when it comes to MS awareness. The
former nurse case manager was diagnosed with the disease in
1998 and in the years since, she’s taken her mission to find a
cure as far as the Senate floor.                                          THERE
“I knew I had to really educate the community about MS to
get them aware. People with MS don’t always know about the
resources available to them and people who don’t have MS don’t
always know how to relate to people who do,” she explains. “I
spoke with other friends and we agreed that we need research,
we need treatments, we need a cure. But I knew I needed help in
getting the word out.”

In 2004, the Port Richey resident decided to do something to            I DON’T
improve MS awareness. She tapped into her professional, social
and fraternal organization network and formed a committee to
stage a fundraising auction. The West Pasco MS Silent Auction
Extravaganza was born.
                                                                           GIVE           “
That first year, Beth estimates that about 75 people attended
the auction, which featured items and services donated by
local businesses. By 2007, the event had grown to some 800

                                                                       - BETH COHEN
attendees. Last year’s auction raised over $10,000, tripling the
2006 total. The auction has become the largest event in the area
benefiting the Mid Florida Chapter of the National Multiple
Sclerosis Society.                                                        activist advocate

“It’s done nothing but increase,” she says, crediting the
perseverance of the committee, which includes friends and her
sister, Tammy Carr. Local businesses and the media participate
because, Beth says, “I get out there and speak. I don’t give up.” As
each auction ends, the next one is already in the planning stages.

Beth’s willingness to speak about MS and to promote this
successful third party event has led her to reach out to members
of the Senate, the House of Representatives and the governor’s
office. In August, U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis acknowledged her for
her support of increased funding for MS research.

The event takes place each fall at the Crab Shack Restaurant, a
waterfront establishment. This year’s auction is scheduled for
Oct. 3-5. Should you get a chance to attend, say “Hi” to Beth.
She’ll be the vibrant one, talking a mile a minute about the need
for MS awareness and funding.
                        In January 2000, Carin Mitchell was living a diagnostic nightmare.
                        Doctors told her she either had an inoperable brain tumor or MS.
                        “I didn’t know anything about MS, but I figured I’d rather have that
“MS IS                  than the brain tumor,” she laughs. When the diagnosis of MS was
                        confirmed, Carin set out to learn as much as she could about the
                        disease. “At first, it can be pretty horrifying. You think it’s a death

    PART OF             sentence, then you learn it’s not. You play the ‘what if’ game, but
                        then the more you learn, the better off you are,” she says.

    MY LIFE,            Carin had to stop working about six months after her diagnosis. For
                        a period of about two years, she used a cane and walker at home,
                        but was wheelchair-bound every time she’d leave the house. The

    BUT I
                        more she learned about MS, the more she became aware of the
                        importance of exercise. In fact, an aquatics regimen has helped
                        her regain her mobility and leave the wheelchair behind.

    DON’T               For the past five years, Carin has applied for and received a
                        Quality of Life grant from the Mid Florida Chapter. Grant funds
                        are used to pay for a membership at the Belle Terre Swim and
    LET IT              Racquet Club, the closest aquatic facility to her Palm Coast home.
                        “The grant pays for my membership and then, as a member, I get
                        discounted fees for aquatic classes,” she says, adding that on a
    RULE MY     “       scale of one to 10, the funding she receives through the grant are
                        “a definite 10!”

    LIFE.               Carin swims between a half-mile and mile of laps almost every
                        day and takes a water aerobic class three times a week. “I have no
                        doubts that swimming has helped me regain my mobility. I can
                        tell a difference in how I feel if I skip a few days,” she says.
    CARIN MITCHELL      She also employs a method from her past for support. Prior to
    activist advocate   living in Florida, Carin lived in Oregon where she was involved in
                        pet therapy. She and Lady, her adopted Dalmatian/Labrador mix,
                        visited rest homes. “Pets are soothing, sweet and fun. They can
                        help calm you, but they can also make you get up and move,” she
                        says. Lady, now 11, shares dominion over the Mitchell household
                        with Oliver, a five-year-old domestic short hair cat.

                        They’re not the only loves of Carin’s life. “My husband has been
                        incredibly supportive through all of this. Having a good support
                        system – my family, my animals, my friends and the MS Society
                        – it means the world to me,” she says, adding that the MS support
                        group that meets monthly in Palm Coast is a tremendous help to her.

                        “I’ve learned that you have to adapt, but you have to make sure
                        MS doesn’t stop you from doing the things you care about.
                        Unfortunately, MS is a part of my life, but I don’t let it rule my
                        life. I try to keep it in the background I try to have a good sense of
                        humor about MS. You have to be able to laugh,” she says.

Nothing can motivate you to become an MS activist like learning
your child has the disease. When Ande Felder’s daughter Megan
was 19, she was diagnosed with MS. “I had to find a way to
channel the guilt,” says Ande, a second grade teacher. “I know
it’s not logical, but as a mother, all I could think was there must
                                                                            “ ONE
have been something I could have done differently when I was
pregnant with her.”
While Megan was relatively symptom-free in the beginning, she
had an exacerbation that put her in the hospital for a month. At
the time, Megan’s older sister Jenna was away at graduate school.        CLOSER
“I think Jenna felt that she’d missed a chance to help Megan
because she wasn’t here. So when we heard about walkMS, we
decided to sign up some friends and do the walk,” says Ande.
The Felders formed a team, Megan’s Marchers. “Jenna registered us
online and when it asked for a goal amount, she typed in $5,000,”
                                                                          A CURE
Ande recalls. “She called me afterward and said, ‘I can’t believe
what I just did!’ It didn’t take us long to realize that we needed to
do more than just register walkers if we were to meet that goal.”

                                                                         FOR MS.
To raise money to meet their walk pledge, Jenna, Megan, Ande
and husband Ben, invited some 75 friends and family members to
a small auction and raffle event. A Tampa area restaurant donated
the room and hors d’oeuvres, with an available cash bar. The first
year, the event – dubbed “MaSquerade” – raised $6,000.
                                                                        - ANDE FELDER
It is now an annual casino night with about 200 participants and              activist mom
an open bar. With the tagline “one step closer to unmasking a cure
for multiple sclerosis,” MaSquerade raised $20,000 in 2007.

“MaSquerade has become a passion. It’s my own way of feeling
that I’m doing something not just for Megan, but for others,” Ande
says. “We’re just so thankful to the MS Society. They’ve always
been helpful, allowing us to participate in workshops and sending
us to meetings. Through the Society, we’ve built friendships and a
strong network.”

As for Megan, her month-long hospital stay all those years ago
has been the only real occurrence of MS symptoms. Today, she
is a tutor in the public schools, a job that her mom says suits
her because, “Megan loves kids and her passion is working with
children. She’s a very sweet, loving person.”

“I WANT                Jeff Hamilton spends a lot of time with ants…well, actually, with
                       ANTS. This is the acronym for a support group Jeff started in
                       February 2006, and it stands for “A Natural Tough Self-Starter.”

    MS TO              Jeff knows a thing or two about being a self-starter. In the 22 years
                       since he was diagnosed with MS, he has been on a mission to find

    BE A               ways to help people with MS live more productive, satisfying lives.
                       In the beginning, there were three ANTS. Just two years later, more
                       than 70 people with MS now participate in the Osceola County-

    DISEASE            based group.

                       Between meetings, he also beats the bushes for restaurant

    PEOPLE             and local business donations. “We raffle off these donations
                       every month at our meetings. Once a year, we do a fundraiser
                       at Sonny’s Real Pit Bar-B-Q and they give us 25 percent of that

    USED           “
                       evening’s proceeds. We use this money for a Christmas party
                       for the ANTS and their family members,” he says. Raising funds
                       for transportation is another passion for Jeff. “I see people all

    TO GET.            the time who just can’t get out. They have a hard time because
                       transportation stinks for people with a handicap.” he says. “We
                       came up with a bowl-a-thon called ‘Striking for Independence’ to
                       help people with MS get out and do something…to not have to
                       sit at home and be depressed.”
    activist ANT       The event raised some $10,000, which was donated to the
                       Mid Florida Chapter. The funds are used to provide handicap-
                       accessible transportation to ANTS needing to travel within
                       Orange, Osceola and Polk counties. “This helps people get to
                       ANTS meetings, but also to the grocery store, church or the
                       doctor’s office,” Jeff explains.

                       Just as important to Jeff as helping Osceola ANTS enjoy a better
                       quality of life, is his desire to help find a cure for MS. “I’ve had the
                       opportunity, through the National MS Society, to meet scientists
                       who are doing genetic research. They’re going to find a cure…
                       maybe not for me, but for my kids’ and my grandkids’ generations.
                       I look at the work they do and I figure, okay, so I don’t have to
                       intelligence to find a cure, but I can sure go out and raise funds to
                       help it happen. I want MS to be the measles, mumps and polio of
                       the future…a disease people used to get,” Jeff says.

                                  WE ARE                            ACTIVISTS
When Carla Alford straddles her Trek bike to take part in this
year’s bikeMS: Bright House Networks MS Ride, it will mark her
20th consecutive year as a bike team member.
                                                                           “ THIS
Carla moved to the Orlando area in 1988 upon graduating from
the University of Florida. “I had no connection to MS whatsoever,
but I knew that I wanted to do something to help others. I was
attending a wedding and met someone who was, at the time, the
MS Bike Tour manager. I guess you could say it was fate that I
                                                                          IS MY
would get involved,” Carla says.

At that time, she joined the bikeMS Ride committee and
remains on the committee two decades later, serving as the only
committee member left from the tour’s early years. “This event
is my pride and joy,” she says. “It’s been such a thrill to see it
                                                                           AND           “
grow from a couple of hundred riders raising $100,000 to an
event that raised $1 million last year!”                                    JOY.
Today, Carla captains a team of some 25 riders. “It started as
a team from work. Over the years, people have changed jobs
so now, it’s really just a team of friends who used to work
together,” she says, noting that the bikeMS Ride has given them
an opportunity to stay in touch.
                                                                     - CARLA ALFORD
As a project manager for a construction company, Carla is often           activist captain
able to help get supplies donated for the bikeMS Ride, walkMS
and golf tournaments. She serves on the golf tournament
committee and provides logistical support for walkMS when
needed, but the bikeMS Ride is her true passion.

Over the years, her passion for the bikeMS Ride has not changed,
but one thing has – her wheels. “About a year and a half ago, I
finally bought a new bike. It’s a Trek road bike with a carbon
fiber frame. But until then, I rode the same Cannondale bike I’d
had since college….every year for 18 years,” she laughs. “It fit
like an old glove.”

    Quality of Life Grants
    • Provided direct assistance to people living with MS through increased grant allowances
      up to $1,500 to help offset cost of things such as in-home care, exercise and wellness,
      counseling and transportation.
    • Needs assessment outcomes resulted in grant expansion to include nutritionists,
     massage and alternative care therapies such as yoga and tai chi.
    • Awarded over $100,000 in grants and financial assistance to people with MS:
           - Durable medical equipment for 46 individuals
           - Medical and related supplies for 11 individuals
           - Exercise, alternative therapies, massage and funding for 23 individuals
           - In-home chore and companion services for five individuals
           - Transportation services for 55 people with MS
           - 18 college scholarships to help families affected by MS
           - The Doris Oram Volunteer Memorial Scholarship ($3,000) awarded
             to one student

    Community Partnerships
    • Contracted with 30 preferred providers who have agreed to offer services at reduced cost
     and sometimes donated, ranging from in-home care to transportation to legal services.

    Volunteer Support
    The Mid Florida Chapter of the National MS Society is driven to end the devastating effects
    of MS. This drive is fueled by the many selfless people – nearly 1,000 – who generously
    give of their time, talents and resources. Without them, our mission would be impossible.

    • Our Chapter’s volunteers include:
           - 50 self-help group leaders and co-leaders
           - 350 MS Walk volunteers
           - 500 MS Bike Tour volunteers
           - 12 golf event volunteers
           - Ten office/administrative volunteers
           - Six advocacy volunteers
           - Seven peer support volunteers

Needs Assessment Completed
In April 2007, the Chapter completed a needs assessment through which people with MS in our 23-
county territory were surveyed. This effort was funded by a $17,000 grant from the Ryan Todd Lacey
Foundation. The needs assessment shed light on areas which the Board of Directors has since reviewed
and prioritized to adopt into the Chapter’s strategic plan. These areas of priority focus are as follows:

• 41% of respondents believe the most important functions of a local NMSS chapter are to provide
  information about multiple sclerosis and current research.
• 25% mentioned support groups/counseling as an important Chapter function.
• 55% of respondents with families reported that social outings and financial limitations are the
 biggest challenges their families face as it relates to MS.

            Advocacy is an important mission element. There are many
            public policies and programs that greatly influence the well-
            being of people with MS. Throughout 2007, volunteers and
            staff from the Governmental Relations Committee (GRC)
            successfully met with more than 40 legislators to discuss
            legislative priorities and become more engaged in local issues.
            Six committee members also took a trip to Tallahassee (Tally
            Watch) during the legislative session to establish a presence
            and participate in committee meetings and House and Senate
            sessions. Visits were also made to Congressional staff in the
            districts and local government officials.

            In order to create a stronger statewide voice for persons with
            MS, the Mid Florida Chapter joined forces with the North and
            South Florida Chapters and hired Jenna Labadie as Director of
            Public Policy for the National MS Society of Florida. In this
            position, she will begin to transform volunteers into activists
            and allow a person with MS to tell their story in the public
            policy arena on the federal, state and local level to create the
            most impact.

            The GRC will transition into a statewide body and the
            public policy agenda will be representative of the three
            chapters. The primary goal is to serve as the statewide
            catalyst for fostering positive relationships with our elected
            officials, in part by educating them on the needs of the MS
            Society. Mobilizing persons with MS, caregivers, family,
            friends and interested persons and engaging them in the
            process can make a lasting impact on public policy. Contact

            new statewide advocacy program.

To encourage innovative research into highly promising areas and to improve MS patient care,
the National MS Society launched the Promise: 2010 Campaign. The Mid Florida Chapter is
committed to raise $250,000 toward this $30 million nationwide effort.

At the end of September 2007, the Chapter has collected approximately $40,000 toward its
commitment. A three-year campaign launched in October 2007 to raise the remaining $210,000
and will conclude in September 2010. Stephen Walsh, managing partner for Broad Street Partners,
LLC, donated a lead gift of $25,000 toward that 3-year campaign and designated the gift toward
the Pediatric MS Treatment Centers component of Promise: 2010.

“When you consider the thousands of people and families impacted by MS, including my own, the
need for research becomes quite compelling,” he said. “By establishing regional centers that can
offer local support to children with MS and aid pediatricians in the difficult diagnosis of MS, we
have the opportunity to help a lot of young people in their own communities.”

Promise: 2010 will fund four targeted areas that hold great potential in the fight against the
devastating effects of MS including:
• Nervous System Repair and Protection will set the stage to help translate basic science into
  meaningful, better therapies for people with MS in the future by restoring nerve function.
• About 8,000-10,000 children have MS, and another 10,000-15,000 experience what may be
  MS symptoms. MS is difficult to diagnose in children and most pediatricians are not familiar
  with MS. A first-of-its kind network of Pediatric MS Centers of Excellence has been created
  to set the standard for pediatric MS care.
• The Sonya Slifka Longitudinal MS Study is the first study of its kind in the U.S. and will
  provide a repository of in-depth information about the lives of people with MS. This study
  integrates clinical information, healthcare practices and socio-economic data to learn what
  happens to people with MS over time and what factors influence the long-term course of MS.
• The MS Lesion Project seeks patterns in the MS damage seen in brain tissue and attempts to
  correlate those findings with actual clinical signs, symptoms and responses to therapy.

                           Sally Buegeleisen 1925-2007
                           On August 6, the National MS Society lost one of its most determined
                           champions. Sally Buegeleisen died at the age of 82, leaving behind a hus-
                           band, son, daughter and many people that admired and respected her.
                           She also left a legacy of compassion and activism.

     Sally organized numerous galas in the Sarasota area to raise funds for MS research. She made
     personal appeals to friends and found matching funds for specific projects. In the 1990s, she
     and her husband Abbott established a fund in Alan’s name to promote MS research.

     In total, Sally raised over $1 million to find a cure for MS. Along the way, she also raised
     awareness of the disease, tirelessly promoting the need for research and family caregiver
     support. In 2006, Sally was the first inductee into the Mid Florida Chapter’s Hall of Fame.

     Today, just as then, we feel privileged to honor her perseverance, commitment and focus. Our
     organization is better for her involvement and countless lives affected by MS have been improved
     through her efforts.

     A Tribute Gift shows you care. It can give thanks, express appreciation, extend congratulations,
     or convey best wishes. The Mid Florida Chapter is grateful to everyone who has chosen to
     help it fulfill its mission in such a meaningful manner.
