Central VA MS Society Dances Multiple Sclerosis Goodbye

3rd annual Women on the Move luncheon to have a ballroom dancing theme and holiday party fashion show for attendees.

RICHMOND, VA, August 21, 2010 ( The Central Virginia Chapter of the National MS Society is hosting its third annual Women on the Move luncheon, sponsored by Sheltering Arms Rehabilitation Center, on Thursday, September 16th at the Jefferson Hotel from 11:30am to 1:30pm. The two-hour event, dubbed "Dancing MS Goodbye," will have a ballroom dancing theme, a silent auction and a holiday party wear fashion show presented by Wardrobe. Amy Lacey, host of Good Morning Richmond on WRIC-TV8, will be a guest model for the fashion show and the keynote speaker will be Leslie Shelton, who will share stories of her journey living with multiple sclerosis since she was diagnosed in 2002.

Women are especially impacted by multiple sclerosis, as they are diagnosed with the disease two to three times as often as men, and are typically the caregiver for family members living with the disease. The Women on the Move luncheon is a way for men and women, alike, to honor all women affected by MS and create awareness of the disease.

Tickets to the Women on the Move luncheon are $75 each and can be purchased online at or by calling 804-591-3041. All money raised through the luncheon will provide research grants to find a cure for MS, as well as provide financial assistance for families in Central Virginia facing the expenses (such as medical costs) of having MS.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis, an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, with at least two to three times more women than men being diagnosed with the disease. MS affects more than 400,000 people in the U.S. and over 2.1 million worldwide.

SureFlap helps Cats Protection respond to kitten fever

Cats normally breed between February and October but the mild winter of 2008/9 extended the season and this summer's warmth and long daylight hours has accelerated the breeding cycle. Pregnancy lasts 63 days and can result in an average of four to six kittens per litter. Cats Protection recommends neutering cats from four months of age to prevent litters of unwanted kittens and keeping up to date with parasite treatment and vaccinations to ensure cats stay healthy. But not all of the cats at shelters are abandoned as, during the summer, pets also go walkabout. Maggie ...

"Running Faster" Is No Answer for Trapped Business Owners

"Running faster on the business owner's treadmill simply does not work," says business freedom fighter Richard Keeves, founder of the new online business service My Business Freedom. "It may be easy enough to start or buy a small business, but building it as a business and not just 'self employment' is often a different thing altogether. Self-employment in your own business can become like a treadmill, and it can be very painful to get off it - unless you re-shape the business first." According to Mr. Keeves, business owners don't necessarily see themselves as 'courageous ...

The Best Sleep Apnea Treatment: CPAP vs. Oral Appliances. A Question of Compliance and Effectiveness. Oral Appliances Win the Compliance Award. CPAP is the Best First Choice for Morbidly Obese Patient

What is the best sleep apnea treatment? It is not CPAP, according to a recent study that showed 60% of patients abandon CPAP use. At least it is not the best treatment for the 60% of patients who abandoned it. This does not mean CPAP is not the most effective treatment, what it means is no matter how effective a treatment may be, it is a poor treatment if it is not used. Oral appliances are an extremely effective treatment for mild to moderate sleep apnea but less effective for morbidly obese patients and those with severe sleep apnea. Oral appliances are the "Best ... - Fever Ray Set for Paris Performance
