Today we will tell you today is national what day. Launched in 2009, World Multiple Sclerosis Day is devoted to a very debilitating disease still unknown to the general public. It is traditionally celebrated on the last Wednesday of May.
World Multiple Sclerosis Day May 31
More than two million people around the world suffer from multiple sclerosis. It affects more women than men with a ratio of 1.7 women to 1 man and is usually triggered on relatively young subjects.
MS is characterized by an inflammatory reaction of nerve origin and can evolve quite rapidly with various neurological manifestations. It is considered the leading cause of non-traumatic disability in young adults.
Scientific research is not yet able to specify the true causes of the disease and medicine still has no cure.
The House of MS, a presence throughout France
Every year, in several cities of France, local days are organized. Find them in the ARSEP website.
