Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system that affects 75,000 Canadians today. At the MS Society our mission is to be a leader in finding a cure for MS and enabling people affected by MS to enhance their quality of life. Mobility issues require equipment and services in the form of wheelchairs, lifts, power beds, household maintenance, and transportation. Because the economic burden of this disease is immense and can come when a person is building both career and family, the MS Society provides financial support as well as support programs, education seminars, and information to our clients.
