Sept. 20 ‘Taste to Liberate’ event sets goal for small changes with big impact.

TORONTO – All are invited to enjoy great wine, tantalizing food, and stories of hope at the Taste to Liberate in support of Multiple Sclerosis and CCSVI research and treatment in Toronto next week.

The event, a five course meal with wine pairings is scheduled to take place on Monday September 20th, at Tappo Wine Bar and Restaurant in Toronto’s historic distillery district, is expected to be raise funds and awareness for this often labelled controversial treatment.
CCSVI, or Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency, is a condition characterized by the narrowing of the veins that drain the blood from the brain and chest. Although, research is not yet conclusive, there appears to be a strong correlation between CCSVI and Multiple Sclerosis. In fact, the anecdotal evidence in mounting in the MS communities, with new testimonials daily of patients “liberation” from the debilitating disease.

“We recognize that the CCSVI treatment can make a tremendous difference for those suffering from MS and we want to support the MS community in their quest for access to this procedure” said Helen Cosburn, of the Brian K. McWilliams Foundation.

The evening will also feature the musical talent of local artist, Morgan Sadler.
Money raised from the event will go to support much needed research at St. Josephs Healthcare in Hamilton, as well as two local patients in their quest for treatment now.
