CLARK—The New Jersey Metro Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society will host a town hall meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 13, to discuss the impact of multiple sclerosis on those living locally. The 7 p.m. meeting will be held at the Clark Municipal Building, 430 Westfield Avenue.
The meeting will give area residents the chance to find out more about the society and the programs and services that are available to them. “This meeting will provide an opportunity for our friends who have MS and their families to meet with chapter leadership to let us know what we are doing well and to inform us of other ways that may need our assistance” says Michael Elkow, New Jersey Metro Chapter president.
Every hour someone is diagnosed with MS, a chronic disease of the central nervous system for which there is no cure. Multiple sclerosis interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body and stops people from moving. For some, this means living with unpredictable symptoms that can come and go, like numbness and blurred vision. For others, there is more permanent damage, like paralysis. For everyone impacted by MS, it means not knowing what the day will bring and always being prepared for the unexpected, making it difficult to move forward in life.
To attend this meeting or for more information about multiple sclerosis or local programs and services for those living with MS, contact the New Jersey Metro Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society at 201-967-5599 or visit www.nationalMSsociety.org/njm.
