FEATURING MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER LARISSA NUSSER
She Loves To Laugh
Multiple sclerosis is no laughing matter. However, Larissa Nusser, who herself was diagnosed with MS in 2000, has found a way to laugh in its face. Nusser, a graduate of the Integral Yoga Institute in Manhattan, is an exciting interactive motivational speaker who is a certified laughing yoga instructor. Join us for what promises to be one of the jolliest luncheons ever! JOIN THE MOVEMENT to laugh in its face.
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.
