  • The National MS Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. Yes�you can be healthy even if you do have MS. Wellness is a dynamic state of physical, emotional, spiritual and social well-being that can be achieved even in the presence of a chronic illness or disability. For a person living with MS, the road to wellness involves more than treatment of the disease. Equally important are health promotion and prevention strategies, satisfying personal relationships, a strong support network, fulfilling work and leisure activities, a meaningful place in the community and adequate attention to one\\\'s inner self. Explore the resources available through the Greater Illinois Chapter and collaborating organizations to help you support a life of wellness, which optimizes your general health. Individuals may apply for program scholarships through the chapter�s financial assistance program, too.
