Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a neurological disorder that affects the neurons in the central nervous system, causing debilitating and ultimately deadly consequences. There seems to be little known about this disorder,
and much research is currently being done in order to develop better treatment options.

It usually starts in early adulthood between the ages of 20 and 45, and the prognosis can vary (Steinman et al, 2002; Calabresi, 2004). It affects approximately 300,000 individuals in the United States (Keegan & Noseworthy, 2002). More women than men get the disease at a ratio of two women for every one man (Calabresi, 2004). read more

LaNita Thurman Turner – Her Story – from the book The MS Project

July 22nd, 2011 by Laina Turner

When I was thinking of what one(s) of the many stories about my mother I wanted to share it was hard to choose. Finally, I decided on one that not only is funny but also shows what a great attitude my mother had. It took place in the early 90’s and we were going to a mother/daughter banquet at the church. My mother loved these events as they gave her a chance to dress up and get out and see friends. When I arrived to pick her up she tried to no avail to get me to drive us in her car. My sporty Pontiac Firebird wasn’t exactly the easiest car to get in and out of, even more difficult when you were in a wheel chair with little leg strength. However, I didn’t want to drive her Cadillac and insisted we drive my car. Being the good sport that she was she finally agreed. The fact it was a nice spring day out and my car had T-Tops didn’t hurt my cause. We got to the church and enjoyed a nice event. By the end of the evening my mother was happy but very tired. As you know it doesn’t take much to wear you out when you have MS. I wheeled her out to the car and we started our normal wheel chair to car seat routine. She put her hands around my neck and I put mine around her waist and I lifted until she was standing up with me holding her. I turned her a little bit so she could slide into the car and started to lower her down. This is where it gets funny.
