Why we’re walking to end MS
We either have MS or have a loved one who has MS.
Have you heard of the Prince George Multiple Sclerosis Self Help Group?
If not this is what we are...
Two years ago, PG unfortunately lost our local chapter of the MS Society, we were all so sad and left feeling helpless and alone. Ken Biron and Amy Ayers re-established an existing self help group. We want to try to fill the need of the roughly 800 MS patients in our city. Sandy Stibrany is a member of our group ,a member of the BC/Yukon Multiple Sclerosis Board of directors, and the mother of an MSer. We have monthly meetings every 3rd Thursday between 1-3pm. We now have 29 members and would love our group to grow. There are so many more of us in Prince George. We would love to have more get togethers to talk, laugh, cry and learn more about other MSers and Multiple Sclerosis.
Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Every day 3 more Canadians are diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, an unpredictable illness. People with MS suffer from Balance, Vertigo or Dizziness, Bladder and Bowel Disfunction, Cognitive Impairment, Depresseion, Fatigue, Gait (difficulting in walking), Optic neuritis, Paroxsmal symtoms, Pain, Sensory Impairment, Numbness/Tingling, Sexual Dysfunction, Spasticity, Tremors, Seizures, Uhthoff's Phonomena(Heat Intolerance) and Weakness.
