Our vision at the MS Society of Canada is a world free of multiple sclerosis and our mission is to connect and empower the MS community to create positive change. Multiple Sclerosis is a complex disease and Canada has one of the highest rates in the world. On average, 11 Canadians are diagnosed with MS every day. The impact is felt by family, friends and by the community. MS is unpredictable, affecting vision, hearing, memory, balance and mobility. Its effects are physical, emotional, financial and last a lifetime. The Southwestern Ontario Chapter of the MS Society is the merged chapter of the former Sarnia-Lambton and London-Middlesex. Serving those in Lambton, Middlesex, Elgin and south Huron counties. Our client service support ranges from information and referrals, education, support groups, funding programs and recreational programs and activities. Our fundraising initiatives include the London, Sarnia & Strathroy Mandarin MS Walks, Pizzafest, MS Carnation Campaign, I Challenge MS, In Honour and In Memorium donations, and membership fees.
