CHUMS is the only multiple sclerosis based non-profit
organization in the United States that focuses on supporting
a child's need to understand the disease. Life-changing diseases
like MS can be a scary and difficult thing to explain to a child
- especially if you don't really understand it yourself.
CHUMS believes that the
adult figure in the child's life is his/her best hope for understanding
multiple sclerosis so some practical ways to begin talking about
this complicated disease are provided throughout the site -
particularly in the CHUMS
your children are very young and you feel that now may not be
the most appropriate time to tell them about the disease, you
will have to tell them one day. Don't wait to prepare yourself.
The communication techniques offered by CHUMS will help
you in every relationship in your life: co-workers, friends,
near and distant family members.
