MS Activist Recognized as “Claims Team Member Spotlight” by Allstate

March 25, 2015

MS Activist William Seegull of Uniondale, New York was recently recognized by Allstate as a "claims hero" for his work with the National MS Society. When asked how he gives back to his community, off the job he shared: 
 
"I've been involved with Multiple Sclerosis for almost 15 years. My wife has MS so I know firsthand how this disease affects an individual and a family. I volunteer in a variety of fundraising and awareness building activities at the local and national level. I'm a member of the National MS Society's Government Relations Committee and have traveled to Washington, D.C. with my family to talk with Congressional leaders about the need for more research. I want to help win the fight against MS for my wife, my daughter and everyone else who may be affected by this disease!"
 
Thank you for your work as an MS activist!

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are leading to better understanding and moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.
