GLASTONBURY MOM CHANGING LIVES FOR THOSE WITH MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
When Jennifer Ganley was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis back in 2012, working a full-time job soon became challenging. There were bouts of exhaustion and pain so debilitating that she faced difficult decisions in order to improve her quality of life. After realizing there were few local resources for people coping with the disease, she started her own not-for-profit foundation, AFMS (Advocating for Families with Multiple Sclerosis). We love that every dollar she raises goes directly to patients. She works with the Mandell Center for MS, which refers her patients who need wheel chairs, scooters, walkers, air conditioning units, compression stockings, shower rails or any item that allows them to live a better, safer, and more comfortable life. She can get people what they need literally within an hour of their request. Now that is the true meaning of helping people!
