FIND A CURE FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
On behalf of Merry Slone
About My Campaign
We find ourselves in a world full of changes, some good, others not so much. Individuals with Multiple Sclerosis must also deal with a world of changes, albeit personal changes that they experience, but are, many times, undetected by those around them. There have been treatment advancements that directly impact those with MS, contributing to improvement in quality of life. What we’re really looking for, however, is a cure. To find a cure, we must understand the cause. Hence, my appeal to you.
I have devoted endless hours, over nearly 30 years to make Multiple Sclerosis disappear. A world free of MS is my driving force. Fortunately, I share this drive with Dr. Lauren Krupp, who is internationally recognized for her work on Multiple Sclerosis. In addition to being a world renown pioneer of pediatric-onset Multiple Sclerosis, Dr. Krupp is also an expert in the areas of fatigue and cognition in MS. Researching the pediatric population will undoubtedly provide answers that will benefit all individuals, across the lifespan, with MS.
Your money is desperately needed to continue this research, which will, undoubtedly help open more doors to ultimately lead to a cure, and to enhance quality of life for all MS patients. Your kind donations also provide the opportunity for those without means to receive quality care and treatment. Funds raised address innovative research in non-pharmacological treatments for symptom management.
With your invaluable support throughout the years we all, together, have raised approximately $8 million. These funds for MS research have benefitted children as young as 18 months, but sadly we need so much more in the way of resources to identify reliable biomarkers that can predict disease course, and target treatments more effectively to move that much closer to curing MS.
I appeal to you, once again, to help make a difference in the quest for a cure.
With deep appreciation,
