Ooh... I'll have to ask my French teacher if there's one nearby. She was diagnosed with MS the summer before last.

Does MS test on animals? I don't see why they would but then again I can't see how some other NFPs do, but you never know anymore.

anndr0id, yes, they do test on animals in hopes of finding a cure. Here is the page on their website that talks about their testing procedures: http://www.nationalmssociety.org/Sourcebook-Animals.asp

Good for you for walking! MS is an aweful thing to be diagnosed with, I'm lucky, my dad has the non-degenerative kind.
