For Your Reading Pleasure

CraniuMS is growing larger and larger everyday, both in money raised ($4845!!) and members joined. Lets take a moment to welcome Katie Lee and Ryan Stupsky to the team!

After spending an afternoon inside a Barnes & Noble today, I eventually found myself meandering over to a lonely shelving unit of books under the category "Medicine." Granted i have taken many a trips to the "Self Improvement" section which sits directly opposite, i have never paid it much attention. So today i gave it a shot and looked for anything on Multiple Sclerosis. After a few hit and misses and looking online, i was able to put together a list of reads for the CraniuMS bookworm. MS Awareness week is fast approaching starting March 8th. What better way to advocate awareness than becoming educated on the very topic we rally for! I hope you feel inspired to enlighten yourselves and immerse yourself in a good book for a good cause!
