Reaching Out MS Society

A non-profit society that provides assistance and information to people whose lives are affected by Multiple Sclerosis, and by doing so encourage productive, fulfilled, independent living. We work separate from, but in conjunction with, the MS Society of Canada and the BC Division. Our twice yearly newsletter gives information on the activities of the society along with helpful hints and humor.
