For fans of the VH1 show, Hit the Floor, many were excited to see the recently released teaser trailer for Season 3, which will launch in 2016. Many fans may not know, though, that Hit the Floor's Devil Girl Dancer, Courtney Galiano, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis (MS) 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. It affects people in the prime of their lives, between the ages of 20 and 50, and there is currently no cure. Instead of letting it get her down, Courtney is fighting back with the help of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society and Team Hit the Floor. By forming Team Hit the Floor, Courtney, her friends, and her supporters hope to mobilize people and resources to raise money to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS, and they hope that you'll join them to become a part of the solution!
The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of Multiple Sclerosis. They help each person address the challenges of living with MS through their 50-state network of chapters. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.
For those interested in making a donation or getting involved with Team Hit the Floor and the National MS Society's various educational and outreach programs, readers may visit the organization's official website.
