I first learned of the AMSC through my childhood friend, who was diagnosed just after we graduated highschool in 1992. The AMSC has proven to be a wonderful experience for her as well as me. There is a support group that meets monthly, and the AMSC has many social functions to get MS people together. There are also exercise programs designed especially for people living with MS. All of this is possible on a very small budget due to active volunteers. There is also an extensive library with various literature on the nature of MS, how to live with it, and information about the different drugs available to MS patients. The AMSC gives their clients help and hope for a better way of living with MS.

The Alaska MS Center is a place of compassion, support and inspiration to everyone who walks in the door or calls on the phone! The atmosphere amongst the board members is one of trying to do the best they can for all Alaskans living with MS, their co-operation with other community organizations striving to support the same goals is exemplary and their dedication in volunteering hours at home retruning personal emails, providing exercise and health and wellness programs thru the community, and their endless forays to health fairs to help educate the people of Alaska as to the nature of the disease and the treatments available is astounding!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

participation in classes offered for watercolor , yoga, healthy living and the water fitness program for the last 6 years.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the compassion of the staff nd board members!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful, knowledgeable, and always willing to listen.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

establish a gym and classrooms where people could attend classes or workout regularly to better their health,and physical & mental well being

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every week
