RICHMOND (NEWS1130) – Did you know that Canada has one of the highest incidences of MS in the world? An estimated 55,000 to 75,000 Canadians have MS; 7,300 to 10,000 living in British Columbia and Yukon.

The Scotiabank MS Walk was this morning at Garry Point Park in Richmond.

When someone is diagnosed with MS, everyone in that person’s family is affected.

The Family Caregivers program gives people help to deal with the challenges of MS in their family. And if you are a young person living with MS you can get support by going to Someonelikeme.ca.

It’s a new online community and resource for young people between 18 and 25 years of age.
