NMSS neck cooler

Heading out Friday in 102°F (38.9°C) heat, who knows what the ‘heat index’ was – the only thing that mattered was the ‘smile index’.
Patti’s NMSS Neck Cooler is a godsend for that passage between air conditioned buildings to our air conditioned wheelchair accessible van.
1.                Submerge in water for 30 minutes or until 90% inflated.
2.              Place in refrigerator or cooler for 15-20 minutes before use
3.              For best results rotate neckwear every 20 minutes in ice or refrigerator
4.              After using hand wash hang to dry. To re-use repeat.
I know you can buy such things commercially but ask you local NMSS chapter first if they have any to give away. We got ours in a goodie bag from a MS Walk. 

I keep it in a cooler along with a couple bottles of water - kind of a Multiple Sclerosis emergency road kit. 

Caregivingly Yours, Patrick Leer
