Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease which attacks the myelin surrounding neurons. This is a devastating disease which does not effect any two people in the same way.

I have had experience with this disease, both my grandpa and my sister were effected by MS. My grandpa was crippled by it, while my sister has vision problems. Since no two cases are the same it is hard to predict, and therefor hard to study.

There have been many studies done on some of the different aspects of the disease and researchers are gaining some ground however. This website has links to sites dealing with that research, as well as some of the organizations available to help.
