Awareness - Whatever It Takes
Multiple sclerosis and the MS movement - everyone working to change lives as we drive toward a world free of MS- become better known each year. But more must be done to spread the word.
MS Awareness Week: March 13 - 19, 2022
Stories of life with multiple sclerosis are told through the everyday moments people with MS experience. Sometimes these moments and feelings can be hard to explain in words, so people with MS often share them in the abstract – the sense that time is standing still as they wait in their doctor’s office to hear the words “you have MS”; or the experience of waking up in the morning and feeling like their legs are encased in cement. Bringing those moments to life, and sharing them with the world, allows the stories of living with MS to be seen and understood like never before.
The National MS Society amplifies the stories of people living with MS to raise awareness during MS Awareness Week and every day. We won’t stop — until the moment we’ve all been waiting for — when we find a cure for every person living with this disease.
You can help ensure that more people understand what life with MS can be like and engage them to do something about it, by following the Society’s social media channels and sharing with your networks.
