MS Awareness Week!

March 7, 2016


Micaela Diarrassouba

March 7th – 12th is National MS Awareness Week. This week allows us to reflect on how this disease has impacted those that we care about, and more importantly, how we intend to inspire one another and work together to defy MS!

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system and it is estimated that 2.3 million people currently live with this disease. Several of our Fusion employees have family members with this disease and each one of these individuals fight the symptoms daily with the tenacity and grace. Please see some of these inspiring individuals below.

All of these women are true fighters and have raised amazing children that we at Fusion are lucky to work with every day. One of our biggest events of the year is the Walk for MS that will be held in Omaha, on April 9th. If you would like to join our team, we would love to have you!
