What the National MS Society Stands for

The mission of the National MS Society is to help people with Multiple Sclerosis to remain mobile, address challenges these individuals face each day, and to drive the research of MS forward. When it comes to mobility, people with MS often become very limited in what they are physically capable of doing. Due to muscle weakness, spasms, paralysis of limbs, and other affects experienced in the muscles, being able to carry out daily functions sometimes requires assistance.

Obtaining the necessary equipment to remain independent is how this nonprofit organization helps people remain in their own homes and continue to be self-reliant for as long as possible.

How the Natl MS Society Functions

The Natl MS Society is solely a nonprofit organization which consists of a large group of individuals who are set on making the world a better place by ridding it of Multiple Sclerosis.

The Purpose of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society

The ultimate goal of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society is to eradicate the world of MS. While this goal is a desirable one, it isn’t able to be achieved overnight. There are many steps involved with reaching this goal and it will take a collaborative effort from people of all walks of life. What the National MS Society is capable of doing is raising awareness of MS and help those who already have it.

Working on prevention of the disease and providing support for those recently diagnosed are on the list of things to do for the National MS Society. Staff members and volunteers concentrate on being a sounding board for those frustrated by the difficulty of daily living MS has created and getting even the smallest community involved. Caring individuals donate their precious time to host awareness events, fundraisers, and to assist in any way imaginable.
