The progress, severity and specific symptoms cannot be predicted; symptoms range from numbness to paralysis and blindness. Most people with MS are diag- nosed between the ages of 25 and 40, but the unpredictable physical and emotional effects can last the rest of their lives. The mission of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is to end the devastating effects of mul- tiple sclerosis. The Delaware Chapter offers programs for people with MS through three offices in the state, including one in Sussex County at Beebe Medical Center.
