    I attended a Heuga Center program in Sept. of 2001.  The attitude of Jimmie Heuga and the work of the organization were quite inspirational and had a real impact on my life. This organization taught me that though exercise is not a cure for MS, it helps one deal better with the deficits created on a cellular level. Many thanks for all that you do!"
