As one of two vice chairs of Women Against MS, Jan Lennon is out to conquer multiple sclerosis, a disease that disproportionately affects women, including her 40-year-old niece, afflicted with it 18 years ago.

Lennon also is the driving force behind the Women Against MS initiative kick-off luncheon on Tuesday at the Pfister Hotel.

"The power of women getting together and committing themselves to a cause is really awe inspiring," Jan says. "There's no stopping a group of women who have made up there minds to make change and help people.

"Women Against MS is an initiative to capture the power of women to make change."
