Tommy Hilfiger has been honored for his work with multiple sclerosis































The well known and very wealthy designer Tommy Hilfiger has been investing some of his time towards helping to find a cure for multiple sclerosis. The Economic Times reported on April 26, 2015, Hilfiger has been honored for his work on multiple sclerosis. At the annual Race to Erase MS Gala the creative designer Hilfiger has been honored for his strong commitment to searching for a cure for multiple sclerosis.

This event raised money for the Nancy Davis' non-profit organization which was founded by her in 1993 after she was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. Davis has said when she was hit with this diagnosis she was told there were no options and she was told to go home and go to bed. Now there are eleven drugs available to treat this condition. And there are investigations into many more drugs which may help to treat multiple sclerosis. Davis said that Hilfiger was the perfect honoree this year because he has been a significant part of her annual event ever since it first began.

It was reported by The Hollywood Reporter that Hilfiger has opened up about his commitment to helping to find a cure for multiple sclerosis. He says that he has always held this cause to be near and dear to his heart. This year is a big year for Hilfiger who has been celebrating the 30th anniversary of his fashion line. His Paris boutique has also recently opened and now he's also the Medal of Hope honoree at the annual Race to Erase MS Gala in Los Angeles.

Hilfiger has been personally involved with this cause ever since his own sister was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He watched with deep emotional pain as his sister suffered from this condition. Since than in 1997 he has wanted to make a big difference in the work to find a cure for multiple sclerosis.

It was his mother's involvement as a Christian which he says helped instill in him a sense of wanting to give back and help others. His mother was very involved with a local church when he was a kid. He now holds the very concept of being able to help others in such ways close to his heart. Hilfiger has been doing an impressive job sharing such high values in life by taking the time to help in the fight to find a cure for multiple sclerosis and he certainly deserves recognition for that work.
