About the North Florida Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society

The North Florida Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society was founded in 1973 and provides comprehensive programs and advocacy to assist and empower the more than 18,000 individuals residing in 34 counties of north Florida who are affected by MS annually.

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.
