The Kym Sellers Foundation (The KSF) was founded by Kym Sellers, formerly of Cleveland’s Radio One, WZAK, 93.1 in April, 2000 as the direct result of Kym being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 1992. Kym’s desire was to share her personal experiences about this mysterious disease, thus she created an organization with a purpose dedicated solely to individuals in the Greater Cleveland and Akron areas, including their families and friends who are affected by Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Participation is open to all individuals who are affected by MS, regardless of race, religion, national origin, or socio-economic status.
The mission of The KSF is to provide outreach, awareness and education to individuals with Multiple Sclerosis and their families, in order for them to have a meaningful effect and significant impact on their quality of life.
Our mission is to provide outreach, awareness and education to individuals with MS and their families, in order to have a meaningful effect and significant impact on their quality of life.
Our goals are to continue raising funds to support educational activities, increasing the capacity for African-Americans and other minorities to participate in appropriate educational initiatives regarding MS. providing support and education to individuals affected by MS, and increasing awareness and access to services for minorities, specifically African-Americans.
Every year friends, supporters and volunteers of the foundation sponsor a number of events that assist individuals affected by Multiple Sclerosis. Please help us continue our efforts!
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is thought to be an immune-meditated disease that affects the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS consists of the brain, spinal cord, and the optic nerves. Surrounding and protecting the nerve fibers of the CNS is a fatty tissue called myelin, which helps nerve fibers conduct electrical impulses. In MS, myelin is lost in multiple areas leaving scar tissue called sclerosis.
