Multiple Sclerosis is a disease which affects over 400 families in Androscoggin County and 3,000 families in the state.

The chronic disease effects the central nervous system, and there is currently no known cause or cure for this disease. There are no textbook symptoms for the disease and each individual is uniquely effected, making the diagnosis very difficult.

All funds raised help with research, client services and advocacy for those impacted by this disease.
