FIND A CURE FOR MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS
On behalf of Merry Slone
About My Campaign
Some of us have been touched more intimately by the global health challenges of 2020, but it goes without saying, sadly we have all been affected. People living with Multiple Sclerosis have been particularly impacted during this time. As with any chronic disease, patients have to combat daily symptoms, deal with potential side effects of medication, and combat lifelong challenges. In addition, MS by its very nature can be extremely unpredictable and frightening.
Since 1995, I have been working toward a world free of Multiple Sclerosis. And thanks to everyone who shares this vision and has been devoted to this goal. Fortunately, we have Dr. Lauren Krupp as our partner in this quest. With international acclaim for her research, Dr. Krupp leads the MS Division at NYU Langone, which, as a center, strives to provide those with MS compassionate, comprehensive care and cutting edge research. Dr. Krupp is devoted to improving the lives of all individuals, across the lifespan, with MS.
Your donations provide the resources needed to continue research, improve symptom management and enhance quality of life for all patients. Your funds are utilized to help patients who are unable to receive care and treatment as they are either underinsured or uninsured. Due to COVID-19, the Teen Adventure Camp, a program that has, over the last 15 years proven to be life-altering for all who attended, will be placed on a temporary hold. Due to this hiatus, the funds raised will be re-directed to innovative research in non-pharmacological treatments for symptom management, as well as pediatric studies focusing on opening the door to causes which will ultimately lead to cures.
Over 25 years, together we have raised more than $7.5 million for MS research benefitting children as young as 18 months, yet we need so much more testing 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. Your donations will benefit all individuals affected by Multiple Sclerosis.
