March is MS Awareness Month!
To help people with the disease, as well as those who have a loved one with MS, the Multiple Sclerosis Alliance of Virginia and a number of other organizations have named March Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month. It’s a time to spread awareness throughout our communities and also bring attention to the current state of research on MS, including new ways to diagnose and treat the condition. Throughout March, you may see orange ribbons adorned with a butterfly symbol. Orange is the official color for MS awareness, and the butterfly represents the shape commonly seen on a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of a brain of a person with MS.
Raising awareness by educating yourself and others is an important part of living with MS. The invisible symptoms of MS can have a significant impact on one’s quality of life. Awareness can help people to better understand what it is like to live with Multiple Sclerosis. Our goal is to educate everyone in the community, not just friends and family.
