Everything we do at Can Do MS is driven by one simple belief: you are more than your MS. With a vision, a mission and core values rooted in the legacy and belief of our founder Jimmie Heuga that everyone living with MS has the power to live full lives, Can Do MS is the start of a whole new way of thinking about and living with multiple sclerosis.
MORE THAN WELLNESS. LIFE STRATEGIES.
The incurable nature of MS combined with the complexity of its various stages, its individual nature and its unpredictability, creates multi-faceted challenges for people living with MS and their loved ones. Lifestyle empowerment is about learning the individualized skills and mindset to take charge of your health and your life with MS.
A WHOLE NEW WAY OF LIVING WITH MS
Our whole person, whole health and whole community approach to MS provides people with MS and their support partners with a deeper and broader understanding of their unique condition, exploring the physical, interpersonal, emotional, intellectual and spiritual aspects of living with MS in personalized, experiential settings. By gaining more in-depth understanding of their unique condition, their body and themselves, and blending that knowledge with realistic and personalized goal setting, individuals learn what is possible with MS and how to live fuller, richer lives within the constraints of MS.
Our Can Do MS program participants have reported improved satisfaction with life, improved mood, stress reduction and improved ability to cope with their disease. All of this results in a renewed sense of hope and improved life with MS.
