GG glamour head shot 001 002When Gloria Greer founded ACT for Multiple Sclerosis (MS) in 1998 along with friends Peggy Cravens and the late Jackie Lee Houston after her daughter Norma was diagnosed with MS, she had no idea the far-reaching impact they would have on the lives of those living with MS in the Coachella Valley. Her passion continues to be reflected today in the organization’s mission statement: Helping Clients Live Stronger Longer.

While other organizations are working toward finding a cure, ACT for MS provides a variety of services to assist in the quality of life for Coachella Valley residents living with MS, including strength training and massage, adaptive yoga, emotional fitness, aquatic therapy, wellness education, peer support activities and electric bill assistance – as well as quarterly luncheons and a client resource center. All programs are free.
