Thank You for supporting MS Research in DoD Budget

Dear [Decision Maker],

As a person affected by multiple sclerosis, I want to thank you for the House's support of $10 million for the MS Congressionally Directed Medical Research Program (CDMRP).



Representative Barbara Lee (CA-13) led the effort with her amendment to fund CDMRP at $10 million.

Together with the ongoing leadership provided by Congressional MS Caucus co-chairs Representatives Burgess (TX-26) and Van Hollen (MD-8), this resulted in a significant victory for medical research.

The CDMRP is a unique funding source for MS researchers doing high risk/high reward work. However, in FY2013 only 16% of applications were funded. For the 23,000 American veterans and 2.3 million people who live with MS world-wide, this additional funding brings hope for the possibility of new treatments or a cure for MS.

Thank you for moving us closer to a world free of MS!

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
