About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and often disabling disease. MS is one of the most common neurological diseases amongst people in their 20’s and 30’s. It affects people often at the beginning of their working lives and when they are starting a family and affects at least twice as many women as men. Up to 60% of people diagnosed with MS will suffer long-term disability. So far, there is no proven cause and no cure.
