The Hohman Rehab staff were lucky enough to join the MS Support Group in Lake County, called the Mighty Survivors, for the annual MS Walk in Baldwin Park, Orlando. This MS fundraiser raises money for research, patient programs and assistance. There is still no known cause or cure for Multiple Sclerosis, so it’s really important to continue to help provide funds for research. Our group walked 2.5 miles – and I’m so proud of those with MS that took on this challenge!
MS is a disease the effects the lining of your nerves; it destroys it and slows down the speed of conduction. This can effect how you walk and move, as well as how you think. One of the most common symptoms of MS is generalized fatigue. This type of fatigue is so intense that it effects how someone functions; it can be so much that you aren’t able to do your job. So this was a big accomplishment for the patients with MS that were able to complete this walk.
The Mighty Survivors support group meets by Southlake Hospital every 2nd Wednesday! If you are someone with MS, know someone, or just want to help the cause…visit with this group of really great people to learn more!
