On Friday, Albert’s Diamonds celebrated the support of friends and family that united together to benefit a disease which sets many in a health care financial rut. Alongside the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the Albert’s team raised $309,000 to provide Hoosiers with free medical care assistance to those with Multiple Sclerosis.
All money that was raised accumulated through various efforts from generous family and friends of the Albert’s team, as well as support from other members in the community. Half of the proceeds were designated to go towards research and development of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and the other to the MS Navigator, a resource for those who need medical financial assistance throughout their journey.
“It just happened to be today that we are having our check presentation for our most recent Multiple Sclerosis auction. We are making the presentation today as well as the announcement that we raised $309,000 for MS,” owner of Albert’s Diamond Jewelers, Joshua Halpern said.
The MS Navigator is something that the Albert’s team is proud to represent and share throughout the region.
“[The MS Navigator] is incredible. Local individuals who have been stricken with this disease and can’t afford it need assistance with MS, whether they are here or anywhere else in the country,” Halpern said. “Now they can tap into the funds we are donating into the Navigator program.”
The range of the funds extends to supplying expensive medication, providing transportation, installing in home equipment and health care assistance. All the funds were cultivated from the Albert’s team and their awareness to the community.
“We are so appreciative,” Beverly Stafford Executive Director at the National Multiple Sclerosis Society said. “It is such a big deal for Indiana, and for Albert’s to do something like this is huge.”
