Jorge Rivera Jr. is a School Age teacher at Childcare Network #109 in Fayetteville, North Carolina. His Mother Lizel Rivera has Multiple Sclerosis. Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic autoimmune disorder that happens when a person’s immune system, which normally protects the body, attacks and destroys the body’s healthy tissue. Multiple Sclerosis attacks the central nervous system (CNS) – the brain, spinal cord, and nerve fibers to the eyes. The disorder attacks the covering that surrounds and protects the body’s nerve fibers. When this covering is damaged or destroyed, nerve impulses are interrupted and creates Multiple Sclerosis symptoms.
