Participants are encouraged to take part in mutually enjoyable activities, such as reading, arts and crafts, games, or other pastimes. Visitors are not expected to provide health care or transportation services. They are there to offer support and friendship.

    Everyday Matters

    Everyone has their own idea of their best life. For people living with multiple sclerosis, the idea of that “best life” can change due to the challenges of having a chronic, unpredictable and lifelong disease. The National MS Society’s Everyday Matters, supported by Genzyme, a Sanofi company, was an interactive national project that uncovered stories of real people facing the everyday challenges that MS can bring on the path to one’s best life.
