A diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is difficult for any family, especially when there are kids involved. Kids who have a family member dealing with MS need support in order to lead healthy and productive lives.
When Shawntae and Janiya’s mom was diagnosed
with MS, they did not fully understand what that
meant and it was a confusing time. To help them
better understand what was happening, their mom
signed them up for the Kidz Klub program run
by the MS Society of Canada - Niagara Peninsula
Chapter of Hope.
The program allows them to connect with other
kids that are going through the same struggle while
learning coping strategies and gaining a better
understanding of the disease. Beyond that, the
program is just plain fun!
When we asked the girls why they like the program,
Janiya said “Kidz Klub is fun, we get to
play games, see animals, cook and
“The program staff are fun to hang out with and we
get to spend time with other kids who have a parent
with MS,” added Shawntae.
