Petition Drive Update

The MS community is actively signing on to the petition to increase funding for MS research. We have seen tremendous support so far but still need your help to reach our goal of at least 200,000 signatures by February 2007. Your signatures will demonstrate the importance of the MS movement in supporting a significant increase in federal funding for MS research. The success of this petition will move us closer to a world free of MS. Following is our progress through December:

This is a great idea. I'm sending it to all my friends, family, co-workers and social organizations my family belongs to. Good luck.
