MS Awareness Week is celebrated to raise visibility of multiple sclerosis and the impact on patients' lives. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system and interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling, to blindness, paralysis and cognitive difficulties. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, most people diagnosed with MS are between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease.

"The real-life story of Bethany reveals the true spirit of the Diplomat Difference and the critical role that specialty pharmacy plays in managing some of the nation's most complex patient cases," said Diplomat CEO and Chairman Phil Hagerman. "At Diplomat, we're committed to not only provide high-touch care through our specially designed programs, but also listen to patient stories and share their victories, whether they be large or small."
