Gundersen hosts Multiple Sclerosis picnic

Posted:
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – There's no cure for Multiple Sclerosis, but a group of Gundersen Health System providers are working to ease some of the pain through education.

The hospital hosted its fourth annual picnic for people with the autoimmune disease, and their families and friends.

Monday's pot luck took the place of monthly education programs about MS.

(MS causes) fatigue, a lot of tiredness, balance issues, all sorts of things. But you can't see those things, and they affect a person's quality of life,” said Kathy Meunier, a registered nurse with Gundersen.

About 25 people attended Monday's picnic. Organizers said it was a way for people in the community affected by MS to meet and talk with one another.
