Kill Devil Hills Mayor Sheila F. Davies has issued a proclamation declaring March 2-8, 2015 Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week in Kill Devil Hills.

“We encourage anyone in our community who has multiple sclerosis, or has a family member with MS, to learn more about the resources, programs, information and support available through the National MS Society and other agencies,” said Mayor Davies. “Multiple sclerosis affects more than 13,000 people throughout North Carolina, and more than 2 million people worldwide. The Town of Kill Devil Hills encourages all citizens to contribute to efforts to find a cure for this debilitating disease.”

“We are grateful the Town of Kill Devil Hills has chosen to support our efforts to create a world free of MS,” said Kristina Fransel McGraw, Chapter President of the Greater Carolinas Chapter of the National MS Society. “MS is the number one disabling disease among young adults, striking them in the prime of life, between the ages of 20 and 50. The National MS Society furthers cutting-edge research and provides vital programs and services for those living with MS.”

The Greater Carolinas Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is asking everyone to JOIN THE MOVEMENT to end MS now. Kill Devil Hills residents can show their commitment to the MS movement with simple actions throughout the week, including: signing up to volunteer or participate at an upcoming chapter event, forming a Walk MS team, emailing a legislator about an issue important to people with MS, telling five people about MS Awareness Week, supporting the Society – every donation moves us closer to a world free of MS.
