Genital herpes and PTSD have affected my life, perspective, and hobbies greatly and I have learned to make this vice into one of my greatest virtues all thanks to ‘Molemen Herbs’ on Facebook and YouTube as they directed me on how to reverse and cure my herpes diagnosis permanently with natural herbal medicines which helped me to improve my focus, changed my mindset, and also helped me provide insight into who I am, and how I grew as a person, y'all should check them out on Facebook, they are the best herbal healers to help you cure any diseases or health conditions. You can connect with ‘Molemen Herbs’ on Facebook or YouTube.

My husband was diagnosed of Parkinson's disease 2 years ago, when he was 49. He had a stooped posture, tremors, right arm does not move and also a pulsating feeling in his body. He was placed on Sinemet for 8 months and then Siferol was introduced and replaced the Senemet, during this time span he was also diagnosed with dementia. He started having hallucinations, lost touch with reality. Suspecting it was the medication I took him off the Sifrol (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started him on PD natural herbal formula we ordered from Health Care HERBAL CENTRE, his symptoms totally declined over a 3 weeks use of the Health Care HERBAL Parkinson's disease natural herbal formula. He is now almost 51 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed! Visit w w w. healthcareherbalcentre .com

I was diagnosed in 1986, before symptoms started. I am a pianist, suddenly unable to open my hands wide enough to get 8 keys. Nobody in my family had MS, nor my grandparents. Last year a cousin younger than me had MS, she is 40. I have primary progressive MS. I do not walk for the last 18 years, I was born in 1952. I have had 6 strokes and 1 heart attack.The Rebif (beta-1a) did very little to help me. The medical team did even less. After roughly five unending years of trauma in the family my MS developed into progressive. There have been many changes in the last 3 to 4 years. Many falls, many fractured bones, and three moves all in five years. I have gone downhill. Considerably. We tried every shot available but nothing was working. There has been little if any progress in finding a reliable treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, My care provider Dr Miller introduced me to Kycuyu Health Clinic & their MS herbal treatment. The treatment is a miracle! I Adhere anyone reading this to try natu

Seems like a great organization
by Desta P. (December 15, 2015)
As a high school student at Fairfield Central High School, I want to get more involved in the community. I feel it is good to start volunteering at a young age because colleges and career opportunities will view you as a good candidate to join them. I encourage my friends to do the same.
by Richard C. (November 22, 2015)
The MSAA is a great place to spend time advocating for such a group that's commonly overlooked. Creating some sort of awareness itself and the question of, "What is Multiple Sclerosis?" was more than enough for me to see that the work of volunteers matter.
by Sebastian A. (July 24, 2015)
This organization is very flexible. Basically, you swim either individually or for a formed team and you swim! That's it! You swim for a goal or for fun, representing your involvement in helping the MS community. Throughout however long you want, you donate and encourage friends and family members to donate too!
by Maple G. (April 16, 2015)
I just have one question. By posting on social media ten times (for one hour of service credits) will I be able to write that down for an hour of service for my school even though it is virtual? Please respond as soon as possible

by Angela T. (August 20, 2014)
The MS Association of America has to be the most heart wrenching, personal, and incredibly inspiring volunteer organization I have ever encountered.
by Lesley M. (August 12, 2014)
I would tell friends/family about this organization because my dad has MS and it would be great to inform the people around him more about it and it would be great to see them get involved in things that have to do more with MS
by Saudah M. (October 3, 2013)
I never done volunteering but i believe no one should suffer or hurt when others aren't. I've been through a lot in my child hood and i believe no one else should. I think this is a great opportunity for anybody or anyone because it teaches you respect and responsibility.You life shouldn't be a suffer. If your hurt try making some else feel better about themselves because one thing might change someone else life.

I'm good with people and I like to help people.
by Minesia G. from Fayetteville, NC (March 9, 2011)
I was diagnosed with MS about 4 years ago. I would recommend this organization to a friend or colleague.
by Jordan B. (February 21, 2011)
I am a High School student at The G Star School of Motion Picture & Television School of the Arts and I am looking for volunteer hours for Silver Star students. I love to swim and also am good with people. I feel that your organization will be a great opportunity for me to give back to my community and to those who are in need of support.

My Mother died of this disease shortly after I returned home from Viet Nam in 1970.I am retired and unemployable with back issues but would like to help.
by richard v. (July 5, 2010)
I myself have MS, and as such I am considered "unemployable". I was an "over-the-road" trucker until I was diagnosed with MS in 2000. After that I felt like I had some type of contagious disease. This is due mostly because people don't know or understand MS. Not all MS patients are confined to a wheel chair I feel that people need educated on MS.
by Regina Marie K. from Shoreham, NY (September 6, 2009)
MSAA is a terrific cause and I would recommend it to anyone looking to volunteer.
by Linda S. from Sweet Springs, MO (August 27, 2009)
