National Multiple Sclerosis Society Supporters
JAM for a Cure
Louisville, KY—Multiple Sclerosis is thought to affect over 2.3 million people worldwide and four bands want to help the National Multiple Sclerosis Society Jam for a Cure. Join hundreds of supporters, volunteers along with the bands, The Greg Foresman Band, The Do Right Men featuring John Mann, Danny Flanigan & the Rain Chorus and V-Groove for a night of music and a great time from 7 pm to midnight!
The February 16th event will be the 9th year that The Greg Foresman Band and Aaron Montgomery have co-hosted Jam for a Cure (JFAC). JFAC originated when Greg Foresman and Aaron Montgomery wanted to do something to give back to their community. Montgomery says, “We decided to organize our friends in the musical community to contribute their talents to an event that could help raise money and awareness.” He continues to say that “JFAC partnered with the National MS Society the second year because my mom has multiple sclerosis.”
In a twist of fate, Aaron Montgomery was also diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2012 shortly before JFAC concluded that year. JFAC has continued to partner with The National Multiple Sclerosis Society and have raised over $190,000 since its inception.
Debra Eichenberger, the Executive Director of the National MS Society states, “Jam for a Cure combines philanthropy and the talents of amazing musicians for a night you will not want to miss. The generosity of Greg Foresman, Aaron Montgomery, Headliners Music Hall and the musicians who donate their time is a testament to their commitment to help the National MS Society find a cure for multiple sclerosis.

About Multiple Sclerosis
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts 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 leading to better understanding and 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 2.3 million worldwide.
About the National MS Society
The Society mobilizes people and resources so that everyone affected by multiple sclerosis can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever.
To fulfill this mission, the Society funds cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education, collaborates with MS organizations around the world, and provides services designed to help people with MS and their families move their lives forward. Last year alone, through our comprehensive nationwide network, the Society devoted $122.2 million to help more than one million individuals connect to the people, information and resources they need. To move closer to a world free of MS, the Society also invested $54 million to support more than 380 new and ongoing research projects around the world.
Early and ongoing treatment with an FDA-approved therapy can make a difference for people with multiple sclerosis. Learn about your options by talking to your health care professional and contacting the National MS Society at nationalMSsociety.org or 1-800-344-4867.
