According to statistics, three times as many women are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis as men. As a result, women across the nation now come together annually, state by state, to learn through inspirational personal accounts about the effects of this potentially debilitating disease and the latest advances in treatment and care. Since 2001, these dynamic groups have been known as Women Against MS (WAMS).
Funds raised through Connecticut Chapter events, such as the Greater Hartford Women Against MS luncheon, ensure ongoing scientific research to find better treatments and a cure for MS. These funds also provide for the continuation of vital programs and services offered by the chapter for more than 6,000 Connecticut residents living with multiple sclerosis.
