Multiple Sclerosis Association of America

The Multiple Sclerosis Association of America (MSAA) is a leading resource for the entire MS community, improving lives today through vital services and support.

This week I had the privilege of chatting with Kaitlyn from MSAA to learn more about Multiple Sclerosis and the work MSAA is doing in communities across the country to support individuals with MS, their families and their care partners. While MS is something many of us have heard of, not all of us fully understand the disorder and what it means for individuals who are living with it.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable disorder that can cause a variety of symptoms, which for many, can flare-up and then subside over the course of days, months, or even years. While MS is not contagious, its causes are not yet fully understood and researchers continue to search for answers.

MSAA provides countless resources for individuals with MS, their families and their care partners – including cooling products for hot summer months, a toll-free helpline and chat, various assistive equipment such as grab bars, funding for MRIs for those who are unable to afford a traditional co-pay or medical bills associated with receiving a MRI and many educational tools.

MSAA also offers many ways for individuals to support their work and in turn those living with MS. Be sure to click on our ACT and DONATE buttons to get involved!
