WE ARE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO
DO SOMETHING ABOUT MS NOW
Since its charter in 1954, the Greater Delaware Valley Chapter has been in the forefront of providing
programs and services for people with MS and those who care for them. We serve 14,000 clients and
their families in 18 counties in southeastern Pennsylvania and southern New
Jersey.
The National MS Society helps people affected by MS by:
Funding cutting-edge research, investing more money in MS research than any other volunteerdriven health organization in the world.
Driving change through advocacy
Services - Direct Financial Assistance
Our chapter is committed to helping people with MS maintain independence through emergency
financial assistance, and home modifications (HomeAble program), respite care and transportation for
medical appointments.
Support Programs
MS impacts everyone in the family. The GDV Chapter offers a full slate of programs aimed at educating
people about how to overcome the disease’s physical, social and financial effects, whether you are a
person living with MS or a caregiver.
Multiple Sclerosis is a disease
of the central nervous system.
MS damages the tissues
surrounding nerves, shortcircuiting the nervous system
and interrupts the flow of
information from the brain to
the body.
Symptoms range from
numbness and tingling to
paralysis.
Most people with MS are
diagnosed between ages 20 and
50.
MS affects more than 2.1
million worldwide & over
14,000 locally.
