I have been remiss in helping the MS Society but Saturday reminded me why I should.
I have a male friend from college who has MS - he's now in a wheelchair, living with his folks, and not doing awesome in PA
Saturday was a symposium at UT Southwestern Dallas - impressive facility. The Neurotherapeutic folks were out in force - gathering literature and information. I chatted with doctors, nurses, physical assistants, therapists, etc. - all folks interested in helping others.
The energy level was high and I felt that these folks would read the literature I handed them and use the information to help those affected with this disease. There is not a cure YET, but research and medicine keep gaining ground.
