MS - Multiple Sclerosis strikes young people. And young people and young families were at the Saratoga Gaming and Raceway May 6 to support the fight against MS.
Multiple sclerosis is an inflammatory disease in which the fatty myelin sheaths around the axons of the brain and spinal cord are damaged, leading to demyelination and scarring as well as a broad spectrum of signs and symptoms.
Disease onset usually occurs in young adults, and it is more common in women. It has a prevalence that ranges between 2 and 150 per 100,000. More common in the Northeast.
