World MS Day History
World MS Day seeks to raise awareness about multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system. It affects the way nerves send electrical impulses to and from the brain. Symptoms can include blurred vision, weak limbs, memory problems, and fatigue. There are no known cures, but there are treatments available that make living with it more comfortable. According to worldmsday.org, 2.8 million people around the world have MS. This day encourages building communities that support those affected by MS.
World MS Day was established in 2009 by the MS International Federation. It is observed annually on May 30th.
