    "Try on MS!" - We invited Lori to wear weighted bands on her wrists to simulate the "heaviness" fatigue experienced each every day by many people living with MS. Lori also wears kitchen gloves as she tries to button up a shirt. The kitchen gloves simulate the loss of dexterity and sensation in the extremities, making it difficult for people living with MS to do things most folks take for granted - like tying their shoes, buttoning a shirt or turning the pages of a book. #TryOnMS
