My mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1985. She passed away in 2000 from an indirect cause after years of suffering from effects of the illness. I am committed to raising money through work I do in order to further research and most importantly bring awareness to the disease.
So many people do not know what Multiple Sclerosis is. Even less know that orange is the color representing Multiple Sclerosis. These are things that must change and hopefully The MS Project will help us increase awareness.
Proceeds from the book and app will go to the MS Society and these plus the website will raise awareness by bringing attention to the cause.
The MS Project is a collection of things created to raise awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. Consisting of a book, a website, apparel, and an iPhone app these elements work together to bring more attention to the disease, teach people, and create a strong community.
The book – scheduled for release on March 14th, 2011 is a collection of stories written by people afflicted by Multiple Sclerosis, or who have loved ones afflicted. This book is meant to be informational regarding the disease as experienced by real people and to showcase the amazing strength people find when facing adversity.
The iPhone app – is a tool to create awareness for Multiple Sclerosis. Connected to The MS Project website the app will include a feed from the blog to provide access to the MS community and a wealth of knowledge. The app is schedule for release March 14th, 2011.
The website – is a social networking site where people passionate about raising awareness for the disease can become members and get to know one another. The goal is to create a community to provide support, awareness, and motivation to people within and outside the community. You can currently access the website at http://www.themsproject.com.
