Part of our mission is to improve the quality of life for everyone who is affected by MS. We recognize that MS impacts the person who has been diagnosed with the disease, as well as those who are closest to that person.
If you are a family member or close friend of someone with MS, you more than likely may find yourself in a caregiver role. Although this role stems from love and concern, it can also be physically and emotionally draining at times. Taking the time to pay attention to your own needs as well as the person you’re caring for is critical for everyone involved. That is why the Hampton Roads Chapter of the National MS Society has a host of resources available to help.
We invite you to use this website as a resource. If you have any additional questions, please call 757-490-9627 or 1-800 FIGHT MS to speak with an MS Navigator.
