Sarah Le Huray has lived with MS since 2012 and blogs about how it has impacted her life.
According to the MS Society, an estimated 100,000 Canadians are living with multiple sclerosis, and while it is most often diagnosed in young adults, aged 15 to 40, we know that it can affect younger children and older adults. It’s an unpredictable disease and can affect vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility causing physical, emotional and financial trauma. Currently there is no cure, but each day researchers are learning more about what causes the disease and are zeroing in on ways to prevent it. Multiple sclerosis is thought to be an autoimmune disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord).
