Send a link to a friend

[APRIL 7, 2006]  Over 20,000 families in Illinois alone are affected by multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, affecting the brain and spinal cord. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, but the unpredictable physical and emotional effects can be lifelong.

A MS Walk to raise money to support research, along with local programs and services that enhance the quality of life for people with MS, will be on May 7 at Kickapoo Creek Park in Lincoln, beginning at 1:30 p.m. Registration is at 12:30.

To form a team, walk as an individual, join a team or make a donation, please contact Nancy Ireland at (217) 732-2339 or
