MS is a disease affecting the whole family. This is why the South Florida Chapter offers many different programs that support parents, friends, spouses, and children of people with MS. Our programs provide them with opportunities to network socially with other families, as well as, gain substantial knowledge and education about the disease.
A program for couples living with MS.
A fun filled weekend for children who live with a family member with MS.
A program for teens between the ages of 13 and 17 who have a parent or grandparent with MS.
Additional resources for children are located on our National website:

- Someone You Know has MS: A Book for Families - for children ages 5-12 for children who have a parent with MS.
- Keep S'myelin - a full color newsletter for children ages 5 to 1
