MS Support

The MS Support Group: helpful, hopeful and monthly! That's A Fact: Although MS is a lifelong condition, many of its symptoms can be managed and controlled with medications and lifestyle adjustments.

Don't forget to join us Tuesday, January 22 for a roundtable discussion to kick off the New Year. This first meeting of the year is also a good way to spend some productive time with people who understand firsthand what you're experiencing. It's a good opportunity to share your story, with all its achievements, challenges, hopes and frustrations with individuals who understand the challenges of managing MS. Those who have lived with MS for a while can be a big help to newly diagnosed individuals by contributing something you know, or some coping strategy you use, that can make a significant difference in someone else's life.
