Patsy Magness: Thank you for writing report on MS

Patsy Magness

To the editor,

Thank you for the Multiple Sclerosis article in the July 17 Craig Daily Press.

My caregiver husband, Ray, and I were very excited with the response we immediately received.

People who have MS and their caregivers do want a support group and help, and to know that they are not alone.

We need to let the population in remote areas, such as ours, know about MS – what it is and how it affects a person with it. It is very prevalent, and much of the general public is unaware.

There are a few of us, such as departments within the Visiting Nurse Association, two people with MS, a caregiver and support group from the Western Slope MS Society office in Grand Junction. We will discuss what, how and where we want to put the MS Support Group.

The meeting will be within the week. Then we will be calling those with MS, caregivers and persons of interest. We will need your input, and we will be letting you know as to where and when our first MS Support Group meeting will be.

We are going to be here to help you, and want you to know that you are not alone.

We’ll keep you posted.

You may reach me at 824-8597 after Aug. 12 for more information.
