most often understood as "muscular dystrophy", which is completely wrong. MS is an autoimmune disease that occurs more women (up to 50% more than men) in young adulthood. there is no known cure for multiple sclerosis. This disease occurs in the form of attacks. Stakeholders may then suffer several days or weeks with paralysis, speech disorders, muscle weakness, trouble with coordination, incontinence and other, more severe symptoms.

Relief of symptoms is achieved by the multi-day administration of cortisone. These damaged insulation of the nerve pathways in the brain, can never be recovered for 100%. Regular intake of medicine can help people to delay these relapses best.

JENNY LOONS want to support the work of DMSG Bundesverband permanently, because the men and women of this organization do a good job and invest a lot of strength to help people who are suffering from the "disease with thousand faces". From our heart, we are glad and happy to help, because it is important to explore how we can defeat multiple sclerosis. there must be operated educational work to overcome prejudices and to accompany people in their disease and to provide advice and assistance. Even for us, this is a major concern, because we are also affected by this disease.
