The first person I knew with Multiple Sclerosis was my neighbor Claudia. I would watch her daughter when she went to the gym and forced her body to move. At the time, I had little understanding of the disease, but I could tell it caused her a great deal of pain and frustration. She was young, only in her mid-30s, but she was determined to beat it.
Chances are you know someone with MS too. The disease of the central nervous system afflicts 400,000 Americans with 200 more diagnosed each week, and women outnumbering men four to one. However, with your help, we can find a cure.
In honor of Multiple Sclerosis month, DermStore has partnered with Lisa Hoffman skin care to donate 20% of all Lisa Hoffman purchases to the Race to Erase MS (April 22-May 11).
Lisa Hoffman has a personal connection to MS, her mother suffers from the disease. In our recent interview with Lisa, we learned why she is so passionate about this cause, and why she believes the Race to Erase MS will make a dramatic impact on the search for a cure.
Race to Erase MS is an annual fundraising event held by the Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis. The money raised benefits the Nancy Davis Center Without Walls, a unique collaboration of physicians and scientists developing innovative research programs and therapeutic approaches to treat and eventually cure MS.
