Are the Children Safe?

When I was a kid I heard that MS is the crippler of young adults. When I was diagnosed and read everything I could find about MS, I learned it is an adult disease.

Most MSers are over 20, but children are increasingly being diagnosed. Apparently many adult MSers remember symptoms as children. Young MSers are treated with adjusted doses of adult medicines, but young people need to be treated as young people.

The National MS Society is providing $13.5 million for pediatric MS.

MS isn’t just for grown ups any more. Read about the changing face of the MSer.
