About Us

We are a group of men and women living with multiple sclerosis who support each other through meetings, social gatherings, and friendly communications. Membership in the MS Mission Possible is free to all. Participation by families and friends is encouraged and welcome. Family and Friends can now join "Partners on a Journey," a support group for caregivers, family and friends. The caregivers support group meets concurrently with MS Mission possible Learn More


Meetings focus on topics of mutual interest and often feature guest speakers. For example, we talk with neurologists, physical therapists, independent living counselors, naturopaths, chiropractors, dieticians, drug representatives as well as special guests. Meetings are held on the second Wednesday of every month.


Marge Punzo

Marge PunzoMarge Punzo was diagnosed with MS in 1996. "Although shocked and frightened, I had 3 young girls who needed me. I had very few MS related issues in the next 10 years, and for that I am profoundly grateful." While physically challenged now, she finds herself once again deeply grateful to have found MS Mission Possible. MS may break connection but connection truly breaks MS.

Sylvia Kemp, previous founding co-facilitator

Sylvia KempSylvia Kemp was diagnosed 19 years ago with Multiple Sclerosis. "As an RN, I felt lucky at the time of diagnosis because I was working with terminally ill children so it did not seem so bad. The last several years I've felt the challenges that we with MS can experience, I believe with this group, together we can live our best life." Sylvia has began a new chapter of her life with her husband, Robert Kemp, in Indianapolis. She is dearly missed but remains connected to MS Mission Possible in heart and spirit. Thank you Sylvia for leading us during our formation and beyond!
