Another advantage is the Multiple Sclerosis needs appeal help By MARGARET LUCKIIUEST Staff Writer Multiple sclerosis, or MS as It is referred to, is a debilitat- ing disease of the central ner- vous system wherein nerves be- come less and less capable of carrying messages from the brain to other parts of Uie body. At the onset of MS, sufferers notice that their limbs become numb and weak. Occasionally they have double vision and sometimes lose their balance. The progress of the disease is not continuous but proceeds by- Bureau for the Advancement of way of sudden attacks and per- iods of ren.ission. The progress may be fast or slow, but in Ihe Ion. run it is serious, and in DTK! cases total disability will result. The disease so far has defied medical science. No causative agent has yet been found, nor any cure. Thus far Ihe mcdicai profession can only assist the patient to live with the disease and to minimize the damage which results from it. The Canadian Multiple Scler- osis Society, which is managed and led by capable neurologists and distinguished laymen, is dedicated lo an unceasing pro- gram of research. The society Is supported by voluntary donations and grants from agencies such as the Uni- ted Appeal. Through stepped-up research scientisls hope to come up with a break throixh which will conquer or control MS so that its victims can lead more nor- mal lives. The Leliibridge branch o! the Multiple S'clerosis Society is a Appeal agency. Each year the grant it receives goes in part towards an information and education program lo ac- quaint people with MS.
