My son 35 has MS I am grateful to the National MS Society and for the good work they are doing. The MS Society helped my family by providing in-home support during my son's recovery from a tragic car accident as the result of a MS Flare up. Kudo's to GM for their support of the National MS Society during NAIAS 2008.

Here are the details:

Southfield, MI - January 12, 2008  - The National Multiple Sclerosis Society Michigan Chapter will have a unique presence at this year’s North American International Auto Show, thanks to the generosity of a major supporter, General Motors.

In an effort to raise awareness of their drive to create a world free of Multiple Sclerosis, the Michigan Chapter of the National MS Society will occupy a corner of the Cadillac display on the main floor of Cobo Hall, throughout the auto show.  Starting with the Press Preview opening, January 13, 2008, the National MS Society will staff their display until the public show closes on January 27th.

X08ca_ct024l “This in an unprecedented opportunity for us to promote our efforts, programs, initiatives and progress to more than 750,000 auto show attendees, as we battle MS,” comments Elana Sullivan, National MS Society Michigan Chapter President.  “This opportunity came upon us rather suddenly and we’re excited to have this tremendous exposure. We’re so grateful for GM’s generosity,” Sullivan continued.

At the show, the National MS Society will distribute information about treatment, research highlights, direct assistance to those coping with MS, and their year long fundraising efforts.   Information on the da Vinci Awards, an annual program saluting advances in mobility enhancement and universal design, will also be available.

We are people who want to do something about MS now. Join the movement at
