The Changing the Odds Against MS Event supports the research and stem cell trial conducted by the non-profit Tisch MS Research Center in New York to find the cause and a cure for multiple sclerosis.
The 1st Annual Changing the Odds Against MS event is being hosted by Keith and Karen Kaplan five years after Keith was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS), which is a type of MS characterized by worsening neurologic function without remission. Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, incurable and unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. At diagnosis in 2012, Keith and Karen learned that not only is there no known cause or cure for MS, there is no FDA-approved treatment for his disease (PPMS).
The Tisch MS Research Center of New York (TISCH MSRCNY) is an independent nonprofit organization supported entirely by grants and private philanthropy and dedicated to finding the cause of MS, optimizing treatments for patients, and repairing the damage caused by multiple sclerosis. All proceeds from the 1st Annual Changing the Odds Against MS event will support the research and Phase II of the Tisch MSRCNY clinical trial beginning in 2017, the first stem cell treatment for MS in the United States ever to move to this stage. Keith is not a clinical trial patient, however the Tisch MSRCNY team is extraordinarily committed to their mission and we are committed to raising funds for their research and the stem cell clinical trial to benefit patients everywhere.
Join us for a fun evening to increase the chance for a cure and change the odds against this incurable disease!
