The AM-radio sports station in Pittsburgh, 970-ESPN, this week broadcast an interesting and informative public-service interview about this being National MS Awareness Week.
The interview was with a group of Pittsburghers living with multiple sclerosis or involved in conducting research to find treatment for it.
Multiple sclerosis is incurable, but it's not unbeatable. Still, it's awfully tough to live with, or to know somebody who has it. Multiple sclerosis is one seriously nightmarish, horrible, insidious and mysterious disease. So, we're spreading the word.
The radio station hasn't saved a podcast of the interview on its Web site, but you can learn more about MS by visiting the Western Pennsylvania Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and the Allegheny General Hospital Multiple Sclerosis Treatment Center.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all people affected by MS and also, of course, to all victims of the tragic events in Japan.
