MS knows no timetable – this is why we offer support when you want and need it.
The MSFriends® program connects you with volunteers living with MS. The common bond of living with MS creates a unique connection. MSFriends volunteers complete a rigorous screening and training program and are focused on the needs of those who call for support.
What are the benefits of an MSFriends peer relationship?
  • Having someone who knows first-hand what it is like to live with MS to talk with and share your story. MSFriends is there to help you deal with the changes brought about by MS.
  • Having a sounding board for good decision-making and problem solving.
  • MSFriends is just a telephone call away ― ready to help you.
  • MSFriends has a call-back service for family members of those living with MS. Leave a message with the volunteer who answers and a trained volunteer who also has a family member with MS will call you back to provide support.
Connect today by calling 1-866-673-7436 (1-866-MSFRIEND); 7 days a week, 9 a.m. - 12 a.m. EST
