Hey everyone, my name is Paul Houmpavlis. After researching Multiple Sclerosis in depth and seeing firsthand how detrimental it can be to one's life, I began looking for various venues of fund raising. Multiple Sclerosis is a degeneration of the myelin sheath that covers the components of the Central Nervous System. Although it is known that the immune system begins to attack the myelin sheath cells, the reason MS occurs is currently unknown. Current research is being done in the fields of epediomiology, genetics, and immunlogy to determine the causes of MS and thus find more effective treatment.
The reason that I am interested in raising some money for Multiple Sclerosis is due to the fact that I have been studying to be a physical therapist. Helping others has been something that I have been passionate about for quite some time and I hope that this can provide some help to the foundation. I know it is not much but I believe that even a small change can make a large difference.
