MS is commonly associated with a variety of visual disturbances that can result in blurry or hazy vision with decreased detailed vision, decreased color distinction, and night vision. These disturbances may affect one eye at a time or both eyes, and symptoms may be temporary or may last for a longer time. To maximize your function, mobility, independence, and safety, it's important to incorporate strategies and modifications catered to your own needs. Learn more in our new library article: Strategies to Improve Functional Vision Performance in MS.

Continuing her journey of raising $10,000 for the MSGlobal charitable bicycle tour, our CEO Lisa Mattis is back on her bike this week riding for Julie Hare, a 2014 CAN DO® Program Alumna. Julie shared with us how she first isolated herself after being diagnosed with MS in 2009. Then she found Can Do MS and the CAN DO Program, which in her words, was the "game changer" she needed. "With help from Can Do MS, I made the choice to adapt my lifestyle and continue to benefit from that decision every day."

Check out Julie's story and help Lisa provide more "game changers" to people with MS and their families by donating today.
