Our mission is to support and work with persons with Multiple Sclerosis and their families to better understand and cope with the many varied symptoms of the disease; to increase public awareness and understanding of MS, what can be done to help and the resources presently available to people with MS; to raise necessary funds to finance the society and to assist MS sufferers with medical needs.
Please join us the 1st Monday of each month at our support group meetings held at the Christ Church West Hall in Warwick. Christ Church is across from the Belmont golf course on Middle Road. Please use the Ord Rd entrance for easy parking.
All are welcome to join us at 6:30pm!
Every May on the Friday prior to Mother's Day, the MS Society holds their annual tag day; our biggest fundraiser to raise money to sustain our small charity. A majority of the funds we earn go toward supporting our members with medically related costs; medication, personal hygiene, insurance and equipment such as canes, wheelchairs, air conditioners in order to make lives a bit more comfortable. May is MS Awareness Month worldwide and for years we joined with Canada, the UK and US in honoring those of us with multiple sclerosis by offering carnations for generous donations which we coined "Buy a carnation, give a donation". The white carnation honored our Mothers' who have passed away, the red carnations honored our Mother's still living and the other colored carnations just made us feel pretty when we pinned them on our shirts and lapels! While we sadly have decided to replace our paper carnations with the stickers due to monetary costs we certainly hope that our "carnation stickers" will continue to draw the donations we were blessed to receive last year. The MS Society tag day this year was on Friday, 6 May 2016. If you missed the chance to give us a donation, please visit our donations page. We sincerely appreciate any donation you can offer, big or small!
