Two disabled women, Dr. Debbie Heil and Lisa Luthringer RN, MSN, are taking on the world after their diagnoses of Multiple Sclerosis. The girls co-founded MS Home-The Multiple Sclerosis Center of South West Florida in 2000. That organization is so strong and powerful; it has served over 2000 individuals and continues to provide social service and intervention to 300 families affected with this diagnosis.
What’s next for these girls???? The Heil Luthringer Foundation for Multiple Sclerosis Education became a reality in December 2007 and has influenced individuals internationally as well as in the U.S.
