"Recognizing the Blue Ridge Chapter of the National MS Society.”

    Whereas, Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that affects approximately 4,000 people in West Virginia; and

    Whereas, Most people with multiple sclerosis are diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 50 but the unpredictable physical and emotional effects can be lifelong; and

    Whereas, Studies show that early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can reduce future disease activity and improve the quality of life for many people with MS; and

    Whereas, Multiple sclerosis is a disease that not only affects the person with the condition, but also greatly impacts family, friends and the community; and

    Whereas, The exact cause of multiple sclerosis is still unknown, and there is no known cure; and

    Whereas, The symptoms of MS may be mild such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision; and

    Whereas, Every hour of every day, someone is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis; and

    Whereas, The National Multiple Sclerosis Society envisions a world free of MS; and

    Whereas, The Blue Ridge Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society provides West Virginia residents with programs and services to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS; therefore, be it

    Resolved by the House of Delegates:

    That the House of Delegates hereby recognizes the many individuals who work hard every day to help those afflicted with Multiple Sclerosis; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the House of Delegates extends its sincere appreciation to the members of the Blue Ridge Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society for its many contributions to the State of West Virginia; and, be it

    Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a certified copy of this resolution to the appropriate representatives of the Blue Ridge Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
