The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is the country's largest funder of research for a cure while helping people with MS lead more fulfilling lives. More than 88,000 people in Colorado and Wyoming are affected by MS and your support can and will make changes in their lives.
About MS and the MS Society - Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, immune-based disease that attacks the brain and spinal cord. Currently, there is no known cause or cure for MS. MS typically strikes in the prime of life, usually between the ages of 20 and 50, with women being two to three times more likely to be diagnosed with MS. The Society invested $40 million in 2011 funding 325 worldwide research projects and our Chapter contributed over $1 million towards this effort. Five research projects are located in Colorado, totaling more than $1.8 million in funding.
The Chapter provides programs, education, advocacy, financial assistance and other services to help people with MS lead a more productive life
