I am in a group in my area that is for people with MS who are in their 20's and 30's. I found out about it through my infusion site for Tysabri and its run though the National MS Society. We meet aproximentally once a month and just talk about whats going on, share experiences, ect...its like a support group in a way. Anyways a few minutes ago I got this email...
"Please plan on Oct 14th for our next meeting. We will be meting at Delmonico's restaurant on E. Henrietta Road. We will have a speaker and dinner provided for us courtesy of Serono. Please let me know if you will be able to attend."
Ok so I read it and thought yum I love Delmonicos...and oooh free dinner...who is Serono? Just a quick google search and I quickly find the website that says "Merck Serono is a market leader in the treatment of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) with Rebif®, approved for the treatment of relapsing-remitting MS in over 80 countries worldwide. In the United States, we market Novantrone® for worsening forms of MS."
Oh, its a drug company, yipee...is it just me or is this not really a appropiate sponser for a support group meething...and the guest speaker, who is that going to be? A drug rep?
My roommate and I are just kinda like having a wow, is seriously for real, moment.
