Get To Know NMSS

The founder of this organization is Sylvia Lawry, and was created March 11, 1946. She created it because her younger littler brother Bernard started having trouble balancing, and seeing correctly, all symptoms of M.S. Sylvia devoted her whole life to finding a cure for him and thousands of others. You can find the NMSS located in the U.S, UK, Canada, and Australia.
