What is MS?
Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, neurodegenerative condition that affects the Central Nervous System (CNS). The body’s own immune system appears to attack the protective sheath of fatty protein, called myelin, which surrounds the nerves in the brain, spinal cord and the optic nerve. An attack results in inflammation and development of one or more lesions, resulting in scarring or sclerotic plaques, forming on the nerves. These lesions interfere with the nerve messages sent back and forward through the brain, and spinal cord.
Every person diagnosed with MS will experience it slightly differently, depending on the location, size and number of lesions formed and where they are located, as well as the type of MS. For some, sensations are altered while others experience difficulty with muscle strength and movement and can also affect a person’s capacity to process information as well as their emotions and vision can also be affected
The course of MS is unpredictable. Some people are minimally affected by the disease, while some may experience more frequent relapses leading to varying levels of disability.
It is not yet known what causes multiple sclerosis, or why it affects one person and not another. As a result, people with MS are often faced with uncertainty about the future.
Multiple sclerosis is the most common degenerative neurological condition diagnosed in young adults, with over 75% of people diagnosed under the age of 40.
WHERE DO THE FUNDS GO?
As stipulated here on our website, as well as in our social networking promotions and advertising, All Profits go to MSWA. Everyone involved with our fundraising efforts does so on a voluntary basis, no exceptions. This is part of our well known "Rock For MS" pledge. As we crusade for a cure, our only goal is to support people living with MS and other neurological conditions and we do so via the wonderful people and friends at MSWA.
Every dollar raised can help a person receive home help aids, mobility aids, afford them modified cutlery, provide a bluetooth or speakerphone modification, and even help to provide support for a professional Health & Lifestyle assessment and the development of an individual action plan to improve health, well being and a quality of life. No amount is too small to support those living with incurable, unpredictable and debilitating neurological conditions. Please join us.
