MS (multiple sclerosis) interrupts the flow of information between the brain
and body and can stop people from moving forward in their lives. 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, but teenagers and young children get MS too. MS
affects more than 2.3 million worldwide.
Join the movement. STOP progression,
RESTORE function, and END MS forever.
The National MS Society helps each person address the challenges of
living with MS. In 2014, the Society invested $51.5 million to advance
more than 380 research projects around the world to stop MS in its
tracks, restore function that has been lost, and end MS forever. Through
its comprehensive nationwide network of programs and services, it also
helped more than one million people affected by MS connect to the
people, information, and resources needed to live their best lives.
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

Meet Nick D'Alleva
Nick D'Alleva has been a member of the Edible Arrangements® family as
a franchisee since 2004, when he began developing what is now a
3-store enterprise in the Boston-Manchester area.
Nick and his family have been advocates for the National MS Society,
Greater New England Chapter and support the organization through
Edible Arrangements® product donations and fundraising efforts.
Increasing awareness around MS is a cause that is near to Nick's heart,
as it has personally touched members of his family. Nick's brother-in-law,
niece and members of his extended family have battled or are currently
battling this disease.
To date, Nick and his family represent the largest fundraising group for the MS Challenge Walk on Cape Cod!
In September of 2011, Nick championed the MS cause, and led his fellow Massachusetts and New Hampshire franchisees in a
united fundraising effort to help create a world free of MS. With just two weeks of fundraising, these franchisees raised $5,240!
With the success of this effort, Nick and the Massachusetts and New Hampshire groups then partnered with the Rhode Island
stores and today, they continue to raise funds during the month of March-National MS Awareness Month.
During MS Awareness Month this year, 61 Edible Arrangements® store locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode
Island will donate $5 to the Society for every Orange Citrus BlossomTM arrangement sold. This is especially fitting as orange is
the official color of the MS movement.
To order an Orange Citrus BlossomTM arrangement, call or visit a participating Edible Arrangements® store location near you!
On behalf of Nick and all Edible Arrangements® participating store locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode
Island, we thank you in advance for your support!
