Collectively, DIY MS and other fundraising efforts help accelerate breakthroughs that change lives and will end MS forever.
Here are some of the powerful ways DIY MS is making an impact:
The National MS Society is the largest private funder of MS research in the world, leading to discoveries that have transformed treatment and care.
People affected by MS have access to around-the-clock information, support, and resources from the National MS Society to help them live their best lives.
Advances in understanding the complex symptoms of MS have resulted in effective new ways to address them and ease the challenges of living with MS.
There are more therapies specifically approved for treating and managing MS and there are more potential MS therapies in development today, than at any other time in history.
MS is more quickly diagnosed, enabling early and sustained therapy to slow disease activity.
There is much greater awareness of the many symptoms of MS and ways to address them to improve quality of life.
Scientists are making breakthroughs in identifying risk factors that can increase a person’s susceptibility to MS, which will help lead to ways to prevent the disease.
In addition, we ensure each person with MS can live their best life with more connections to information, resources and others with shared experiences, and the voices of people with MS are heard and drive change wherever it is needed.
