Nearly 75% of all people diagnosed with MS are women. Women Against MS (WAMS) is a nationwide education fundraising campaign that creates an inspiring and powerful, motivational environment.
The Arizona Chapter provides programs and services for more than 14,000 people affected by MS in Arizona. Funds from WAMS directly assist and empower those in Arizona with MS. For thousands of people with MS, these things mean the difference between living a full and active life and just existing.
Join us as we gather to learn more about MS and the women it impacts as we celebrate the strength and grace of women with MS.
Keynote: Tricia Gouveia
Be inspired by our phenomenal keynote speaker, Tricia Gouveia, who uses hope to keep her going everyday:
"I've been known to say that multiple sclerosis is a life sentence, not a death sentence. And truthfully, I sometimes have to remind myself of that fact. There are tough days, for sure.
But every day I strive to live and love my life to its fullest, despite my MS diagnosis. I smile often, laugh as much as possible, fill my time doing the things that make me happy, and surround myself with people I love. MS has played a major role in my life since I picked up that phone call from my doctor in 1994. This unpredictable disease has shaped my life in so many ways, making me who I am today."- Tricia Gouveia
