CUTLINE: Lisa Gerrol, president and CEO of the National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter, accepts a check from Get Baked bakers Caryn and Emily Woodward.

This year, Woodward collected $2,643 for the chapter, almost $5,000 the past 2 years.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
