MS is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system affecting mostly young adults. Canada has one of the highest MS rates in the world, with three new Canadians being diagnosed daily with the disease. MS can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. The MS Society is a non-profit organization that operates on donations. All donations go towards providing support services and research into finding a cause and cure for MS.
