Comments Off on celebrate friends and fans – 2011

Fridays are for celebrating Stance Friends and Fans. I encourage you to visit their facebook page, website or place of business and tell Stance about your experience with their them.


March is National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Month. The National MS Society Colorado Chapter is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now – to move together toward a world free of MS. .
Each year, thousands of Coloradans come together to raise funds and awareness for the Society by participating in fundraising events all around the state.
Join the movement and MOVE OTHERS!



In the United States today, there are approximately 400,000 people with multiple sclerosis MS—with 200 more people diagnosed every week. Worldwide, MS is thought to affect more than 2.1 million people. While the disease is not contagious or directly inherited, epidemiologists—the scientists who study patterns of disease—have identified factors in the distribution of MS around the world that may eventually help determine what causes the disease. These factors include gender, genetics, age, geography, and ethnic background.

MS is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

If you have had an experience with the National Multi Sclerosis Society Colorado Chapter, please share it here. If not, visit them today. I look forward to hearing about it and sharing your experience with other Stance Friends and Fans.
