Nancy Davis: Race to Erase Multiple Sclerosis – Emotional Pro

May 16th, 2013

MS affects close to two million Americans primarily between the ages of 20 and 40.  Three times as many women as men develop this disease. Nancy Davis made it her deep personal commitment to help find the cause and ultimately the cure of this disease. In 1993 she founded The Nancy Davis Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis and held the first Race to Erase MS event that pulled in over $1.3 million for the Center Without Walls Program. The annual Race to Erase MS event has raised over $30 million for multiple sclerosis research to date. All proceeds directly fund the foundation’s Center Without Walls program, a selected network of the nation’s top seven MS research centers. This nationwide collaboration of physicians, scientists and clinicians are on the cutting-edge of innovative research programs and therapeutic approaches to eradicate MS. “While there’s no cure for MS yet, we have broken so much new ground in a very short time and we will not stop until we cross the finish line and find a cure for MS,” Nancy explains. We’re doing our part by telling you about this disease and about Nancy Davis’ dedication to eradicating it. Come listen, and support Nancy and all the people struggling with this debilitating illness.
