Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness & Advocacy
Walter Gefrom is a proud supporter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
For many years, Walter Gefrom has donated to and participated in Walk MS events. Focused on raising awareness, Walk MS are events that advocate for continued research on multiple sclerosis (MS). Unfortunately, little is understood about MS, a neurological disorder which is often classified as an autoimmune disease. Gefrom is passionate about raising awareness for MS because he believes this form of advocacy could lead to major changes for the MS warriors fighting through their condition.
