It is also interesting to point out that White has a much higher incidence of MS compared to other races. It is possible that genetic predisposition partakes in controlling responses that can result in multiple sclerosis.

Healthline just launched a video campaign for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) called “You’ve Got This” where individuals living with MS can record a short video to give hope and inspiration those recently diagnosed with MS.

You can visit the campaign homepage and check out videos from the campaign here: http://www.healthline.com/health/multiple-sclerosis/youve-got-this

MS SocietyHealthline will be donating $10 for every submitted campaign to the National MS Society, so the more exposure the campaign gets the more the videos it’ll receive and the more Healthline can donate to MS research, support groups, treatment programs, and more.
