Multiple Sclerosis Awareness!
The last Wednesday in the month of May (from 2009-2017) is celebrated as "World MS Day." For the past couple of years, May 30th has been set aside as the day when we are asked to focus on this disease which affects the central nervous system. We still do not know the cause of this illness but more than 2 million people have been diagnosed. Living with a chronic disease affects not only our activities of daily living but our relationships and our mental health. If you get a chance, watch the 2013 movie When I Walk. It's an autobiographical film directed by Jason DaSilva. A man living with MS.
