      Frankenmuth mother, daughter talk about Multiple Sclerosis

      I t's National Multiple Sclerosis Awareness week.

      Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information between the brain and body, ultimately interfering with movement.

      It's a life altering disease that affects each person in a unique and different way.

      There are more than 18,000 people in Michigan living with MS.

      Health professionals are making great progress in the fight against MS, including the efforts of a nationally recognized team at Wayne State University in Detroit. In less than two decades, MS has moved from being an untreatable disease to one with many effective treatment options.

      An MS Walk will be held in Frankenmuth on Saturday, May 10th.

      Start/Finish location: Harvey Kern Pavilion

      Registration opens: 9am

      Walk starts at 10am
