World Multiple Sclerosis Day (AKA World MS Day) is a day to raise awareness, and campaign for and with everyone affected by MS all over the world. MS is a disease in which the immune system attacks the protective covering of the nerves which disrupts the communication between the brain and the rest of the body of those affected. This disease is potentially disabling. As of today, there is still no cure for this disease though, treatment may ease the symptoms.
