Multiple Sclerosis is a disabling disease that affects the central nervous system. MS interrupts the flow of information from the brain to the body and stops the body’s movement. Between the ages of 20 and 50 are when most people are diagnosed with MS, there are twice as many woman as men who are diagnosed with the disease, and nearly 2.1 million people, worldwide, suffer from MS. The Rock Against MS Foundation provides services from a three grant resource system, which will see that sufferers of multiple sclerosis are provided with daily care, quality of life needs, and emergency funding, as well as assistance to those who suffer from MS, to live independently, full lives. Rock against MS Foundation is currently in the planning phase to build a brick and mortar facility called “The Rock House” that will provide multiple programs, and opportunities, free of charge, to those who have been affected by MS.
The show starts Wednesday, March 4th, at the Whisky A Go-Go, at 8PM. Doors open at 7PM, and tickets can be obtained through www.ticketfly.com/event/778371
