What is MS?

MS stands for Multiple Sclerosis! It affects the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). They can tell you have MS because there would be a lesions on your brain from damaged nerves. 80% of the people with MS will experience fatigue at one point or another. About 45% of the people with MS are not severely affected by this disease. There are four kinds off MS, relapsing-remitting, secondary-progressive, primary progressive, and progressive relapsing.

Does anyone in your family or do you know anyone with MS?

Thanks!

I know having MS is scary or knowing someone with it. I want to thank my Aunt Alicia, Uncle Ron, and my mom for being such amazing people about it! They have lived their lives without a mom since they were in their 20's! Just think how hard that would be! No mom for the rest of your life. Alicia and my mom have helped me make this paper what it is! They answered most of my questions and they are just so amazing! My grandma was a wonderful person, even though I only got to see her once! I miss her so much! I got to see her once when I was a baby. So, I don't remember anything really. My mom has told me so many stories about how wonderful she was. All I can remember is that one picture that I have of her holding me!
