Many people living with MS report a high level of stress related to financial concerns, with many spending less on things like food, heat and other necessities to be able to afford medical care. The Hampton Roads Chapter provides financial assistance to people with MS who meet certain criteria. We prioritize interventions that create sustainable results, address significant threats to health, safety and independence, and for which no community or government resources exist. Price
MS should not get in the way of education. Unfortunately, the financial pressures caused by employment interruption and high medical costs put college tuition out of reach for many people with MS and their children. The National MS Society has established a scholarship program to help people with MS and their children pursue full time post-secondary college or technical school education.
Research in MS is progressing at a remarkable rate, with more potential therapies in the pipeline than at any other time in history. The National MS Society is a driving force of MS research, supporting and stimulating world-class research into ways to prevent, better treat and cure this unpredictable disease of the brain and spinal cord.
