The Orange colored ribbon on this tree shows awareness for Multiple Sclerosis (MS). MS is a complicated and progressive disease that attacks the central nervous system, (brain, spinal chord, and optic nerves). It affects 300,000-400,000 people in the U.S. Symptoms include numbness, fatigue, poor balance, poor mobility, blurred vision, pain, memory loss, heat sensitivity and more. In more severe cases, a person may become paralyzed or blind. Though there is no cure, there are treatments for the various symptoms.
Every year Faline creates a tree to support a charity/organization of her choice. In this way, she helps to share awareness of the horrible issues that many of us have to face in today’s world.
