FRONTENAC, MO (KPLR) – Every hour, someone in the U.S. is newly diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS), an unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and the body.

Michelle Keating, RN, has been living with MS for more than 32 years. She spoke with Christine Buck about an upcoming workshop to help people living with MS.

The physical symptoms of MS - loss of balance and coordination, slurred speech, extreme fatigue, problems with memory, and in some cases even paralysis - can make small everyday tasks difficult.

The emotional challenges are just as debilitating and require support from family, friends and a professional care team.

During the “One Day for Every Day” event, people living with MS and their care partners will learn from local experts practical tips for everyday living with MS related to strengthening relationships, talking about MS with loved ones, and using technology innovations to help make life with MS more manageable
