Join the Great MS Center Challenge in November 2018
- MS affects about 2500 people living in Southwest Florida.
- Most were diagnosed between age 20 and 40.
- 85% of our clients are women, with an average age of 59.
- As the disease progresses, many lose the ability to walk, or perform normal daily activities without assistance.
The Multiple Sclerosis Center of Southwest Florida (MS Center) offers a comprehensive wellness program consisting of therapies proven to help people manage the symptoms that affect their everyday lives. The MS Center’s focus is on wellness, not illness. Most of our clients see significant improvement in mobility, balance, and an overall feeling of well-being after participating in our program for just a few weeks.
We serve over 400 people through our services, education, and outreach throughout Southwest Florida. The MS Center is local and is not a chapter of a national organization. We are supported entirely by individual donations, grants, and fundraising events.
