DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – It is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week. Multiple Sclerosis is a disease in which the immune system eats away at the protective covering of nerves. Lori Gregorski is living with MS, she is also the senior development manager for the MS Society’s Ohio chapter. “MS is a disease that you can live with,” said Lori. “Get support from the local society as well as from family and friends.” She said MS is called the “snowflake disease” because no two patients are alike in how the disease impacts them. “So, it’s important to lean on people. Find out about proper nutrition, exercise and of course medical advancements.”
You are encouraged to get involved. The development manager-teams for the Ohio Valley chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Steven Niemann, said there are five MS walks in the Dayton area in April and May. You can visit the Walk MS or the Bike MS websites for more information. The events raise money to support MS programs, services and research.
