As someone who has lived with Multiple Sclerosis for several years, I decided to DO something about it. After being diagnosed in April of 1996 with Relapsing Remitting MS, the first thing that crossed my mind was, “exactly what is MS?” The truth is, not much is known about the cause of MS and there is currently not a “cure.” For those out there who struggle day to day and live in the dark about what’s on the horizon, I felt a need to ask the hard questions directly to the leading researchers of Multiple Sclerosis. Questions like, “do we know if there is anything coming down the pipeline that will cure or stop this disease?” The answers I found were troubling to say the least. Band Against MS is the non-profit charity organization I created to launch a diligent battle to not only get answers but to help find solutions for a multitude of struggles that MS patients go through on a regular basis. There is so much to do and so little time to get it done. This is why we are asking our community of MS patients, their families and their friends to join with us and Become Part of The Band as we march toward the ultimate goals of BAMS, a CURE.
