Clinton Woman Joins The Fight Against MS
March 6, 2014
CUTLINE: Clinton resident Amy Levine claims a 2014 Walk MS lawn sign from Bruno Ceniccola while picking up dinner from her favorite local eatery, Ceniccola’s Italian Deli and Pizzeria, located in Clinton. Levine is a certified speech therapist with 30 years of experience. She has worked at Yale New Haven Hospital for 25 years, which exposed her to many Connecticut residents living with multiple sclerosis, a potentially debilitating disease. Last year, Ceniccola, owner of the pizzeria, hosted lawn signs for National MS Society, Connecticut Chapter events, and even partnered with the chapter to host a pig roast and raise funds to support the fight against MS. Today he is hosting a box of 100 lawn signs to distribute to community members and restaurant patrons interested in spreading the word about Walk MS. The 2014 Walk MS, presented by Travelers, will be held Saturday, April 5, in Madison and Westport, and Sunday, April 6, in Cheshire, Danbury, East Hartford, Enfield, Litchfield, Simsbury, Stamford, Waterford, West Hartford and West Haven.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts 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 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.
