Your Senator Could Provide Millions for MS

The U.S. Senate is expected to decide this week on our federal funding request of $15 million for multiple sclerosis research. Click here to remind your Senator to vote for MS research.

This new funding stream through the Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP) is important for advancing MS research, especially during tough economic times. Last year, MS received targeted funding under this program for the first time, thanks to your MS activism. The U.S. House of Representatives has already voted to include MS research in its Defense Appropriation.

Send a quick email today. This is our last chance. The Senate is expected to vote on the Defense Appropriations bill this week. The CDMRP is a Department of Defense program that is funded annually through Defense Appropriations.
