MS is considered a devastating disease because of its unpredictability. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of the disease cannot be foreseen. You never know when attacks will occur, how long they will last or how severe they will be. However, doctors and scientists now believe a cure for MS will
be found within the next ten years.
"Multiple Sclerosis is a disease whose time has come."
-- Jonas Salk, M.D.
