Action Needed: Urge Congress to Accelerate MS Research

The Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act (S. 849/H.R. 292), will guide the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in tracking the incidence and prevalence of neurological diseases, including multiple sclerosis. The information collected will provide a foundation for evaluating and understanding aspects of these diseases we currently do not have a good grasp of, such as the geography of diagnoses, variances in gender, disease burden and changes in healthcare practices among patients.

Ask your U.S. Senators and U.S. Representative to show their support for people affected by MS by cosponsoring the Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act today!

Please Cosponsor The Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act

Dear [Decision Maker],

As an MS activist, I am contacting you today to ask that you cosponsor the Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act (S. 849/H.R. 292).

The bill would help advance multiple sclerosis (MS) research by establishing a system to collect the size and makeup of the MS population. Currently, there is no accurate account of how many people in the United States have MS, nor of the demographic characteristics of those living with MS. As a result, MS researchers are working at a distinct disadvantage: lacking basic information about the disease. This system could supply data that points to new environmental triggers, which could lead to a better understanding of the disease and new disease targets.

The cause of multiple sclerosis is unknown, and a cure, so far, doesn't exist. Please help move us closer to a cure by sponsoring S.849/H.R. 292!



Help accelerate MS research by cosponsoring the Advancing Research for Neurological Diseases Act (S.849/H.R. 292) today!

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
