My MS Moment
National Multiple Sclerosis Society:
Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable disease of the central nervous system. Currently there is no cure. Symptoms vary from person to person and may include disabling fatigue, mobility challenges, cognitive changes, and vision issues. An estimated 1 million people live with MS in the United States. Early diagnosis and treatment are critical to minimize disability. Significant progress is being made to achieve a world free of MS.
The National MS Society, founded in 1946, is the global leader of a growing movement dedicated to creating a world free of MS. The Society funds cutting-edge research for a cure, drives change through advocacy and provides programs and services to help people affected by MS live their best lives.

Stories of life with multiple sclerosis are told through the everyday moments people with MS experience. Sometimes these moments and feelings can be hard to explain in words, so people with MS often share them in the abstract – the sense that time is standing still as they wait in their doctor’s office to hear the words “you have MS”; or the experience of waking up in the morning and feeling like their legs are encased in cement. Bringing those moments to life, and sharing them with the world, allows the stories of living with MS to be seen and understood like never before.
The National MS Society amplifies the stories of people living with MS to raise awareness during MS Awareness Week and every day. We won’t stop — until the moment we’ve all been waiting for — when we find a cure for every person living with this disease.
You can help ensure that more people understand what life with MS can be like and engage them to do something about it, by running these :15, :30, and :60 Television PSAs
