Welcome to the Walking With Faith Website
Walking With Faith, Inc., a 501(c)(3) organization, began with one woman, Alecia Harris, determined not to let being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) keep her down.
What is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic disease of the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord). MS affects more that 400,000 people in the United States. About 200 new cases are diagnosed each week in the United States. The disease usually starts between the ages of 20 and 40 years with an average age of onset around 30. MS affects more women than men. Seventy-eight percent of people with MS are women. Every hour someone is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
MS can cause blurred vision, loss of balance, poor coordination, slurred speech, tremors, numbness, extreme fatigue, problems with memory and concentration, paralysis, and blindness and more. These problems may be permanent or may come and go.
Join our team of more than 100 volunteers who work together to raise funds toward ending the devastating effects of MS.
