About National MS Society Nebraska Chapter

Mission:"The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now- to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. We help each person address the challenges of living with MS through our 50-state network of chapters."

Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic disease of the central nervous system. It is as unique as the individual who has it. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with more than twice as many women as men contracting the disease. There is no cure, and MS affects more than 27,000 Nebraskans. The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now. In 2008, the chapter provided more than $34,000 in direct financial assistance to families in need and more than $28,000 in mobility equipment to help clients maintain independence and quality of life.
