March is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Month and this week is MS awareness month. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) involves an immune-mediated process <http://www.nationalmssociety.org/What-is-MS/Definition-of-MS/Immune-mediated-disease> in which an abnormal response of the body’s immune system is directed against the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord and optic nerves. There are various types of MS in the world and 2.3 million people worldwide are affected by MS everyday. I have personally seen others struggle with this disease and I have also seen family members and friends hurt because their loved one is suffering. A couple of years ago I walked the MS walk along several other survivors, those currently battling, and others who were there to offer support. It was a very cool experience being around those who were fighting MS, but making a point to do the walk. My good friend Hannah Oliver’s platform is Multiple Sclerosis: Taking Steps Toward a Cure. She has been affected by MS and has done an amazing amount of work to raise awareness about this disease.

Of course, you can do things to help out like participating in the MS walk or wearing orange this month to raise awareness, but know that when you buy a Southern and Thankful product you are helping those who struggle with MS on a daily basis. I am Southern and Thankful for those who put time and efforts into helping those battling MS. Join me and the millions of others in supporting those with MS.
Share this with friends and family members because the more shirts that are sold the more we are helping a greater cause. I cannot imagine the pain and struggle those living with MS face. And that is why Southern and Thankful is supporting them this month. Join me!
