MissionTo improve the quality of life of individuals and their families living with MS and related neurological diseases through care, support, education and research.
HistoryThe Rocky Mountain MS Center was founded as an independent nonprofit organization in 1978 by Dr. Jack Burks and N. Daren Writer. Mr. Writer was diagnosed with MS in 1974. He was told there was nothing anyone could do about MS, and to go home and put his affairs in order. This was unacceptable to this man of action and leader in the Denver business community. He sought out a brilliant, young neurologist who was dedicated to finding the cause of MS and a cure for the disease. Like Mr. Writer, Dr. Burks believed something could be done for people living with MS. Together they created a single, comprehensive facility to both treat people with MS and find the cause and cure for the disease.
