Speak Out for MS Research

We have an opportunity right now to secure $15 million in federal funds for MS research. But we need your help today to show Congress how important this research is.

Please take a minute to e-mail your members of Congress, urging them to support this life-changing research. Simply click here.

Your e-mail will make a difference. A delegation of MS activists from your state will be in Washington, D.C., on May 8. You can magnify their voices on this issue. Send your message today, so your legislator receives it at the same time supporters are meeting with legislators on Capitol Hill.

Advocating for MS issues works. We've proven it. Last year, MS activists encouraged their legislators to make MS research eligible for another stream of funding through a Defense research program. This new $15 million would come from a similar program.

Increased research will help thousands of people living with MS, but we are competing for funds. We must act now, and we need your help today.

Tell Congress that people living with MS will benefit from this investment.

Please don't assume your members of Congress know how important this issue is. Tell them yourself.

The more people who speak up, the more successful we'll be. Once you've taken action, please help us spread the word. Tell friends and family about this important funding opportunity, and urge them to add their voices as well.

Thank you so much for your support.

P.S. Don't forget to visit my MS Walk Page and support me for the MS Walk in West Hartford this weekend!
