Flowers for mom help campaign to end MS

Gerry Putman and Fiona Patton distributed flowers Thursday to the many volunteers in Prince Edward County who are raising funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Society’s annual MS Carnation campaign.Flowers are being sold through to Saturday at The Beer Store, Pharma Plus, Metro, Victory Archives, Foodland and the LCBO in Wellington. The annual campaign is also thoroughly supported by local restaurants who give flowers to moms for Mother’s Day and by students at South Marysburgh and Athol public schools and at Prince Edward Collegiate Institute.

Many Canadians living with multiple sclerosis are mothers. Others, either children or adults, have mothers affected by this disease because women are diagnosed with MS three times as often as men. That’s why every year the MS Carnation Campaign takes place over Mother’s Day weekend.

For people living with multiple sclerosis the “cure” means different things to different people. For people who have just been diagnosed, the cure will stop MS in its tracks. For people who have lived with MS and have experienced loss of mobility and other serious impairments, the cure means repair of the nervous system and recovery of lost functions.
The research funded by the MS Society addresses all three definitions of a cure. Research is multi-faceted but with clear purpose: to find a cure for MS, to protect the nervous system and repair damage caused by MS, and to improve monitoring and management of the disease. Visit
