In December of 2007, Tyler Campbell, youngest son of Earl, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.  MS is an unpredictable and often disabling disease of the central nervous system, interrupting the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body.  Symptoms range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. At the time of his diagnosis, Tyler was a Running Back at San Diego State University.  He continued to play his senior season, but because he feared being a distraction, Tyler chose not to tell anyone on the team about his disease.  Although MS put a stop to his dream of becoming a professional athlete, Tyler has embraced MS, and dedicated his life to raising awareness and helping others who struggle daily from the disease.

The Pro Player Foundation addresses the needs of those diagnosed with MS by raising funds and awareness through special events and programs. Multiple Sclerosis is an unpredictable and often disabling disease that disturbs the flow of information from the brain, through the central nervous system, and to the muscle. Often times, people diagnosed with MS will feel frequent tingling, numbness, and it may eventually lead to blindness and paralysis.  Pro Player Foundation hosted Flavors of the Gaslamp, Flavors of New England and Flavors of Austin last year.

The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now, to move together toward a world free of Multiple Sclerosis.  They help each person address the challenges of living with MS through their 50-state network of chapters.  The MS Society helps fund cutting-edge research, drives change through advocacy, facilitates professional education, and provides programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.
