MS Activists Raise Awareness for MS Center

MS activists Bill Raney and Karen Jackson are helping raise awareness for a proposed multiple sclerosis center in West Virginia. Spearheaded by Senator Robert Byrd, this project holds great promise for people living with MS not only in West Virginia but nationwide. As individuals living with MS, they both spoke about the need for this center in a news story that aired on WBOY-TV on August 9.

This could be the first comprehensive center for MS research and care in West Virginia, thanks to Senator Byrd. But this project still needs to make it through Congress.
