It can be an opportunity to strengthen character and uncover qualities in yourself that you might otherwise never have recognized.

MS Support
That's A Fact: MS patients react to the heat in a myriad of different ways. Its not uncommon to experience extreme fatigue, unusual difficulty walking, vision problems, confusion, and sometimes even panic. The key is not to let it get to that point and if it does, to cool off as quickly as possible. The goal is always to lower your core temperature. Support and learning for people with MS, caregivers and families

Be sure to join us on Tuesday, July 28 to share your story, with all its achievements, challenges, hopes and frustrations with individuals who understand the challenges of managing MS. Remember that something you know, or some coping strategy you use, may make a difference in someone else's life. And something they're doing may offer new ideas and a different approach for you.

The July meeting is also an opportunity to hear Kimberly Meyer share information on what happens to those with MS during the warmer summer months and how to beat the heat.
