The 13th annual “Women Against MS (WAMS) Luncheon,” hosted by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, will feature Ronda Giangreco of California who turned her MS diagnosis into a year-long Italian dinner party.
Giangreco, the event’s keynote speaker, faced her diagnosis by creating fifty-two Italian dinners and filling her life with love, laughter, and a whole lot of pasta! Ronda encourages others to live wholeheartedly despite their challenges.
“WAMS” is an empowering way for women to unite with other women in the MS movement. While much remains unknown about MS, researchers know that multiple sclerosis affects women in far higher numbers than men. In fact, MS is at least two to three times more common in women than in men. The event serves to educate women about MS and to broaden their knowledge about the work and mission of the National MS Society.
