Just a reminder to everybody that March is Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month
I need to complain.
Other Diseases (like Breast cancer for example) get sooo much attention. Commercials, Radio air time, Posters etc., while you never hear anything about MS. I mean the whole idea of a National MS awareness month is to spread the word and educate right? How come I never see or hear anything??? Do you?
While I realize that people do not die from MS, the fact that it is so debilitating and effects so many people, I would think there would be more action on a National level to spread the word and educate the public about its effects and finding a cure.
I know that many of us with MS are kind of hush-hush about having it, but there is no reason why National or even the Pharmaceutical companies can’t educate the general public about its effects, how wide spread it is and the fact there is no cure! Maybe by enlightening the general public there would be more effort and more support to find the cure.
To my thinking, If more people were aware, then the chances of finding a cure would be that much greater…Does that make sense?
