Support a Great Cause…

The Greater Delaware Valley Chapter of the National MS Society serves 14,000 local people living with MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50. MS is a chronic, unpredictable disease of the central nervous system with no known cause or cure. There is a wide range of symptoms, including tingling, numbness, tremors, loss of vision, cognitive issues and more. The National MS Society mobilizes people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. For more information visit their website.
