Tom Sherak MS Hope Foundation

National MS Society's 35th Annual Dinner of Champions

With a very heavy heart and much sadness, we relay news of the passing of one of our dearest friends and fellow board member, Arthur Schramm. Together with his wife Britta, Arthur truly embodied the word “hope” as he fought tirelessly for years to rid the world of this disease and help those living with MS improve their daily lives. Arthur will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with Britta and their family. It was Arthur’s wish that he be remembered by making a donation to the Tom Sherak MS Hope Foundation.

Statement from Annis Kishner, President of the MS Hope Foundation Board:

It is with deep sadness that we mourn the passing of our founder Tom Sherak. We along with the countless people who suffer from this terrible disease with no known cure have lost a great friend. Tom was our inspiration and, while he might not agree, our leader. He continually rallied us to step up our efforts to fight this incapacitating condition that plagues not only his daughter but millions worldwide. We will miss his infectious spirit of optimism that we can make a difference in the lives of those who suffer daily.

To honor Tom’s memory and his uncompromising resolve to raise both awareness and the research funds needed to counterattack Multiple Sclerosis we are renaming our organization effectively immediately The Tom Sherak MS Hope Foundation. Tom gave us all hope. He continues to inspire us, and we pledge in his memory to continue his fight against MS with equal energy and determination. Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom’s family.
