World MS Day is May
World MS Day is the only global awareness-raising campaign for
multiple sclerosis. Every year the MS movement comes together to provide
the public with information about MS and how it affects the lives of more
than two million people around the world.
If everyone connects to the
MS community to share stories, messages and support for people
affected by MS, then our connections can become more powerful than those MS
destroys. Connect and give what you know by joining the discussion at MSconnection.org.
