multiple sclerosis awarenessBy Justin Adkins:

This week, PSC will be displaying a banner in support of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness.

If you’re unfamiliar with the disease, here is some more information, per the National Multiple Sclerosis Society website:

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.
