March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month in the State of Ohio, the only state to recognize an entire month.  The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is asking people to show their support by wearing orange on Monday, March 7. The goal is to Orange Out Ohio to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis, a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that causes unpredictable symptoms, ranging from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis.  Everyone is encouraged to take pictures wearing their orange apparel and to post those pictures on social media, using the #OrangeOutOhio hashtag. 

People are also encouraged to visit MSconnection.org. The website is an online community that provides an opportunity for people to get involved with the MS movement, to gain accurate information and to discover valuable resources.  Visitors to the website can learn about topics that are important to them, find expert opinions and start group discussions. Information is also available about advocacy, research and events like Walk MS and Bike MS

Help us create awareness by getting a proclamation for your mayor, city council or county commissioners or submitting a letter to the editor at your local newspaper.  We would appreciate letting us know if you are able to obtain a proclamation or get a letter to the editor published so we can highlight it on Facebook and in other areas.  Please contact Tony Bernard regarding questions or if you have information to provide.  Tony can be reached at 614-515-4608 or anthony.bernard@nmss.org.
