One Bike Coffee’s mission revolves around Multiple Sclerosis (MS), a chronic, typically progressive disease involving damage to the central nervous system. In patients with MS, the body’s immune system attacks the myelin sheaths that surround nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord, which can lead to a wide range of physical symptoms. Those symptoms may include:
- Speech Impairment
- Loss of Muscular Coordination
- Pain or tingling in the hands and feet
- Blurred Vision
- Severe Fatigue
It is not known how MS starts in patients, and there is no cure, but there are several medications that may help with symptoms.
One Bike Coffee’s mission is to ease the pain of individuals in our area living with MS by providing a safe, effective method of exercise through bike donations.
