MS.Y.A.N.A provides a safe space to learn to live well with MS.
How did it feel when your doctor announced, "You have MS"?
Did it feel like a punch in the stomach?
Were you shocked into speechlessness?
Did the tears flow?
Did you worry about your future?
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
When she was first diagnosed, Tyra Simpkins felt isolated and afraid. She founded MS. Y.A.N.A. (MS: You Are Not Alone) to so that African Americans like her strive together.
MS is difficult to understand and adapt to even when you're not dealing with cognitive issues. We want everyone to benefit from our fellowship, even when they can't attend our meetings.
Members of MS.Y.A.N.A. can meet privately with you and your loved ones to answer your questions and address your concerns. Contact SharlenaMarie(at)msyana.org for more information.
