What is MS?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a long-lasting chronic and unpredictable disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that can affect the brain,spinal cord and the optic nerves. It can cause problems with vision, balance, muscle control and other basic body functions.
The effects are often different for everyone who has the disease. Some people have mild symptoms and don’t need treatment. Others will have trouble getting around and doing daily tasks.
You may have symptoms like:
- Trouble walking
- Feeling tired
- Muscle weakness or spasms
- Blurred or double vision
- Numbness and tingling
- Sexual problems
- Poor bladder or bowel control
- Problems focusing or remembering
Multiple Sclerosis and the MS movement
The Newberry Event is a Do It Yourself Fundraiser for MS. The event raises non-profit funds to benefit the Oregon Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Our Vision is a World Free of MS.
When you buy a ticket to The Newberry Event, volunteer at the event and/or give a donation, you are helping with the goal of ending MS.
Ending multiple sclerosis for good will take all of us. It’s why The Newberry Event Music Festival to Defeat MS matters so much. And it’s why you matter so much. The Newberry Event helps us team up with friends, loved ones and musicians to change the world for everyone affected by MS.
All you need is the desire to help others and make a difference. Events like The Newberry Event raise money to help drive groundbreaking research, provide life-changing programs and help guarantee a supportive community for those who need it. It’s not just about the money, though. It’s about the community of people that come together to support others with this ugly disease.
Hope to see you there. www.newberryevent.com/tickets
