March: National MS Education and Awareness Month

MSlogo2As well as being Women's History Month, March is also dedicated to another cause near and dear to us here at Ask Patty: It's National MS Education and Awareness month, a month set aside by the MS Foundation to educate and bring awareness of this debilitating disease to the public.  Multiple Sclerosis, says the MS Foundation, stops people from moving.  Thei goal, along with organizations like United Spinal and others, is to make sure it doesn't.  

 Ask Patty, as many of you know, is an ardent supporter of both United Spinal and the MS Foundation, and is a sponsor of the annual Jon Lancaster Toyota Scion Bike MS ride and fundraiser, so we wanted to do our part in helping to spread awareness.  If you know someone who has MS, or have perhaps been recently diagnosed yourself, take a moment to read through these materials brought to you by the MS Foundation and United Spinal.  Even if you don't - take a moment to read them anyway. 

Take a moment this month to help someone with MS to keep moving forward.
