Race to Erase MS Is Making Strides in Expanding MS Treatments

 2 months ago       40 Views

When Nancy Davis was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) 28 years ago, there were no treatments and very little hope. She vowed to change that, and she has, by forming Race to Erase MS, a charity organization that has raised $48 million for MS research in its 25 years.

The charity’s biggest fundraiser is its annual gala, which every year features music, dancing, an auction, and many famous faces from the entertainment world.

This year’s star-studded gala, held May 10 at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, will honor actress Selma Blair. In October last year, Blair revealed that she had MS. Since then she has been very open about discussing the effects of the disease and her treatment.

The benefit will feature performances by the Grammy-nominated R&B/Soul artist Aloe Blacc and the platinum-selling international music star Flo Rida. The special night also includes a fashion show of celebrity models, put together by the contemporary clothing company Alice + Olivia.
