Art forMS by Team Docktor- On Their Way to Their $50,000 Goal in 2010

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 20, 2010) - Team Docktor was formed by family and friends in April 2009. Their goal is to help the MS Society of Canada raise funds for research and help improve the lives of patients diagnosed with MS, as well as, provide support for their families and friends. Benjamin B. Docktor was diagnosed with relapsing-remitting Multiple Sclerosis in 2008. After an episode lasting six months, Ben and his wife Mali decided to become volunteer fundraisers and help the MS Society of Canada accomplish its goals.

Art forMS has been organized by Team Docktor and DaDe ART & DESIGN LAB as a vehicle to help raise $50,000 for Multiple Sclerosis research and services in 2010. The joint efforts of Team Docktor and DaDe ART & DESIGN LAB, a socially minded gallery with an interest in creating unique and exclusive products to enhance interior living spaces, have already raised $31,000 towards this goal.

Art forMS is an art exhibit and fundraising event in support of the MS Society of Canada, Calgary & Area Chapter. The exhibit will showcase works from local and international artists who believe in a world without MS. The show will include works in different media such as: painting, photography, printmaking, and, jewelry design among others.

About Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, often disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord. It is the most common neurological disease of young adults in Canada. Most people with MS are diagnosed between the ages of 15 and 40, and the unpredictable effects of MS last for the rest of their lives.

The MS Society of Canada is the only national volunteer health agency in Canada that funds MS research, provides services for people with MS and family members, and conducts public education programs. Since its founding in 1948, the MS Society has worked to hasten the discovery of the cause, effective treatment and cure for MS. From basic laboratory research to the development of new treatments for people with MS, the MS Society's research program is making a difference in people's lives today.
