Finally! A how-to kit for understanding and dealing with multiple sclerosis (“MS”). This disease affects an estimate 400,000 or more Americans, and several million people, worldwide. “MS Toolkit” reveals the true story of multiple sclerosis' impact -- on everyone! MS is a chronic and crippling disease that often literally stops productive lives in their tracks. MS is currently incurable. While many treatments have been developed in recent years, and research continues to march forward, the principal author, Cary J. Polevoy, believes that insufficient progress has been made for people affected by MS. Researchers and physicians are not yet in a position to trumpet success for hundreds of thousands of “MSers.”
If you have MS, or know someone with MS, you simply cannot be without this book! Cary speaks candidly about the impact of MS on the lives of patients, family, friends, and co-workers, revealing critical information about the disease, the effectiveness of highly touted treatments, and what everyone should know before they find themselves stricken with a crippling disease or sidetracked by a career-ending accident: the importance of disability insurance and how to navigate the often onerous paths of insurance companies and Social Security. Everything is contained in this highly readable volume that everyone will understand. It is a necessity for anyone that has MS for dealing with the changes in their lives, family and work, and the medical community.
