Every week in the United States, about 200 people are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. The disease attacks the brain and spinal cord, and there is no known cure.

But over 70 women from Tioga county spent their morning raising money to find a cure. The second annual Scrap MS took place at St. Margaret-Mary's church in Apalachin. The women paid $20 to put together scrapbooks of their favorite memories.

The event was created by Debbie Kasson of Apalachin, who lost her mother to the disease in 2001. All money raised will be given to the national Multiple Sclerosis Society.
