More about MS...

MS is a disease in which the person's immune system attacks the protective coating of the central nervous system (CNS), called myelin. The CNS includes the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves.

If you imagine that the nervous system is a bundle of rubber coated wires, MS wears down the rubber coating (myelin) until the wire is exposed. Exposing the wire damages it. As a result, electrical signals do not get to their intended spots, and the body cannot work correctly. The level of the affected person's disability depends upon which nerve or nerves are attacked and exposed. Scar tissue builds up to "patch the hole", but does not work as well as the protective coating.

The medical advances, especially in the last 10 years, have given those fighting MS ways to slow down the disease. There is no cure, but finding one is on the horizon. The work of the NMSS is integral for researchers and individuals battling MS.

If you would like to further support the National MS Society, you can do so through Mollie Jackson' s 2014 Bike MS: Ride the Riverside. http://main.nationalmssociety.org/site/TR?px=11792800&pg=personal&fr_id=22016
