I truly enjoyed “Boning Up on Multiple Sclerosis” in the January/February 2010 issue of Neurology Now. I have been around multiple sclerosis (MS) for 55 years now and work everyday to raise awareness. My mom suffered from MS for 38 years, and my wife is on year 20 with MS. I stay very busy maintaining my mom's foundation, which I started 10 years ago. The Mary J. Szczepanski “Never Give Up” MS Scholarship Foundation is a living memorial to my mom, a very courageous lady. We are national, and our Web site is We just added a new $1,000 scholarship for a student already in college who raises funds for MS. High school seniors from MI, CA, WI, PA, FL, and many other states are chasing our 2nd National award of $1,000.
