The Alabama-Mississippi Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society and Regions Bank teamed up Nov. 19 to help two families affected by multiple sclerosis get their homes ready for the holidays.
Volunteers from Regions and the National MS Society assisted with various household chores including yard work, small repairs, painting, cleaning and organizing.
“Multiple sclerosis can make every day tasks like carrying holiday decorations or raking leaves dangerous if not impossible,” said Andrew Bell, Executive Vice President of the Alabama-Mississippi Chapter. “The Day of Service eases some of the burden for these families and illustrates what a tremendous impact we can have when we work together as a community.”
For more information on the locations of the Day of Service, please contact the Alabama-Mississippi Chapter of the National MS Society at 205-879-8546.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from reduced or lost mobility to numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S., and 2.1 million worldwide.
The following is a comment from Candace Oswalt, one of the homeowners who lives with MS after Dave and his team assisted her with yard work.
“Words of appreciation seem inadequate for the work that you and the team have done today. The only words I can find are thank you. I needed so badly to be reminded of good things today and that’s exactly what you did for me!”
