MS Breakfast MC Steven Luke

Steven Luke, Reporter/Anchor, NBC San Diego, lends his heart and personality to emcee this event again in 2012. In addition, keynote speakers shared their inspirational stories regarding their path to becoming leaders and fundraisers in the fight against MS.

Multiple sclerosis (or MS) is a chronic, often disabling disease that attacks the central nervous system (CNS), which is made up of the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Symptoms may be mild, such as numbness in the limbs, or severe, such as paralysis or loss of vision. The progress, severity, and specific symptoms of MS are unpredictable and vary from one person to another. Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by the disease.

“I wish to give special thanks to Mr. Rich Israel, CEO of National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Pacific South Coast Chapter, for his outstanding leadership and ongoing creative development of programs, events, and services,” said Edwards-Tate. “We welcome your support and participation! All of us at Team At Your Home Familycare look forward to playing our part with your help year after year.”
