Canada has the highest rate of MS in the world. Based on current incidence rates, the MS Society of Canada estimates that approximately 1000 new cases of MS are diagnosed in Canada each year, which means three more Canadians are diagnosed with MS every day. Chances are you have a relative, friend, coworker, acquaintance or classmate with the condition.
“My experience with multiple sclerosis began early: I was a teenager when my mom was diagnosed. At first, I don’t think I really understood what was going on. Her MS was mild for the most part. That has changed recently as my mother approaches retirement. It scares me that my mom might not be able to walk, and even more, not enjoy her retirement.”
– Rhonda Head, Saskatoon Saskatchewan Blue Cross MS Walker
