MS Awareness week this year is March 8th -14th!

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable immune-mediated disease that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body. Helping others better understand this complex disease is critical to fueling the progress that changes lives for people affected by MS and that ultimately ends the disease forever.

Multiple sclerosis and the MS movement become better known each year, but more must be done to spread the word. If you want to help generate more awareness, you can help ensure that more people understand what life with MS can be like and engage more people to do something about it. Follow the National MS Society media channels and share the stories of those living with MS, who move life forward every day and don’t let MS define them. MS Awareness week in 2020 is March 8th -14th!

At Sheltering Arms, our healthcare professionals offers a broad range of treatments dedicated to helping those with MS fight the symptoms and a live full, productive life. To talk with someone about how Sheltering Arms can help you, call us at (877) 56-REHAB.
