Leslie Klein Newman has turned her diagnosis into action.

The Asheville resident who was told she had multiple sclerosis during her freshman year in college was honored in Raleigh last month with the Norman Cohn Hope Award, the highest volunteer honor given each year by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Greater Carolinas Chapter.

Newman has helped extend the society‚Äôs reach and improve the quality of life for people affected by multiple sclerosis, said the National Multiple Sclerosis Society's Greater Carolinas Chapter in a statement.  With determination, perseverance and a positive outlook, she has engaged the community, supported the newly diagnosed, raised awareness and expanded fundraising efforts.

Since 2010, Newman has organized more than 70 Service MS projects at the homes of people living with multiple sclerosis, recruiting hundreds of volunteers to work on these projects, it said. Newman has also re-energized the Walk MS event, adding a wellness fair and increasing both revenue and participation.

"This amazing volunteer leader has become the face of MS in Asheville and serves as an inspiration to everyone she meets," reports the chapter.
