Women Join Together to Fight the Devastating Effects of MS
According to statistics, three times as many women are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis as are men. As a result, women now come together annually throughout the state of Connecticut to learn, through inspirational personal accounts, about the effects of this potentially debilitating disease and the latest advances in treatment and care. These same women join together to raise critically needed funds to move scientific research forward to find a cure. These funds also provide for the continuation of vital programs and services offered by the chapter to the more than 6,000 state residents battling the baffling and oftentimes debilitating effects of multiple sclerosis. Since 2001 these dynamic groups have been known as Women Against MS, or WAMS.
