Women are especially impacted by multiple sclerosis, as they are diagnosed with the disease two to three times as often as men. The Women on the Move luncheon is a way for men and women, alike, to honor all women affected by MS and create awareness of the disease. There will also be two other Women on the Move Luncheons in the Central Virginia area, one in Kilmarnock (http://www.nationalmssociety.org/
Tickets to the Women on the Move Luncheon can be purchased online at moveVA.org or by calling 804-591-3041. All money raised through the Luncheon will provide research grants to find a cure for MS, as well as provide financial assistance for families in Central Virginia facing the expenses (such as medical costs) of having MS.
