Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month

March 1st-March 31st
MS is a chronic neurological condition that affects the central nervous system, which is comprised of the brain and spinal cord. In the CNS, nerve fibers (called axons) are protected by a fatty layer of insulation called myelin. Myelin allows nerve signals to travel properly.
The number of people with MS in the United States is estimated to be between 300,000 and 400,000. Worldwide, an estimated 2.5 million people have MS; these numbers are estimates, however, and because people are living with MS much longer, the true number is assumed to be much higher.
Launched in 2003, National MS Education and Awareness Month is observed in March of each year, and is a nationwide effort by the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation and affiliated groups to raise the public's awareness of multiple sclerosis. The vital goals of this campaign are to promote an understanding of the scope of this disease, and to assist those with MS in making educated decisions about their healthcare. Please check out the following links for more information and let's find better days.

Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month

March 1st-March 31st
Preventable, Treatable, Beatable® Colorectal cancer is cancer of the colon or rectum. It’s as common in women as it is in men. This year, over 142,000 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer and an estimated 50,830 will die of the disease. With certain types of screening, this cancer can be prevented by removing polyps before they become cancerous. Several screening tests detect colorectal cancer early, when it can be more easily and successfully treated.
