MS interrupts the flow of information between the brain and the body. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of the disease. Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, but teenagers and young children can also have MS. There are more than twice as many women as men diagnosed with the disease, which affects 2.1 million people worldwide. Join the movement to create a world free of MS at www.MSnewengland.org.
