Shining A Light on a dark disease
Multiple Sclerosis : The Invisible Enemy
Our immune systems are a beautiful thing: usually a well oiled machine. When we get sick, this war loving system attacks the invader and gets us on the road to a healthy recovery. At least that's what is supposed to happen. The scary truth is, that every once in awhile, this life saving system turns on the person it has been designed to protect. Like a traitor in a spy movie, the immune system begins targeting the already healthy parts of our body. Multiple Sclerosis is one of the many autoimmune diseases that can occur when "the body attacks".
