In Alaska, a state with a high prevalence of individuals with MS, there was not one entity that met the needs of the MS patient~ from information regarding medication choices, to exercise classes , medical referrals, lifestyle changes , or just a place to gather with other individuals to talk. We are Alaskans with MS whose goal is to establish such an environment, to build a place that meets the needs of the Alaskan MS community by providing educational resources, support and regular programs created to improve one’s quality of life. By providing services above and beyond the direct medical needs of an individual, we compliment the efforts of the Alaska Medical Community and work to provide the best resources available for each individual.
In partnership with the YMCA, we sponsor a free MS Aquatic Therapy Program in Anchorage , and thanks to a generous grant from the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation (MSF) we are able to offer Anchorage based Balance, Core and More strengthening classes, Nordic ski training with Olympian Lars Flora, Adaptive Yoga, Therapeutic horse back riding and Brain Games; Mat-Su sessions of Healing Yoga at Anjali Yoga Studios, other educational seminars, a Disability Facts and Fun Fair and many Common Adventures encouraging healthy living practices outdoors and in.
With the generous help of the Providence Foundation, private donations and grants we are able to provide a warm gathering place for local support groups, hold informational events, provide care referrals and medication information as well as a friendly ear when needed.
In the Resources section of this website, you will find links to information on Multiple Sclerosis treatment, research, community support groups, and many other resources.
