Ask Your Representative to Support MS Awareness Week

March 8-14th is MS Awareness Week. E-mail your U.S. Representative today ask him or her to support a resolution that formally recognizes MS Awareness Week in Congress, H. Res. 1116.

The MS Awareness Week resolution was introduced by Representative Barbara Lee (CA-9) and stresses the following important goals of MS Awareness Week: reaffirming our nation's commitment to creating a world free of MS, recognizing people living with MS, and saluting the health care professionals and medical researchers who continue to work toward a world free of MS. The resolution is a true indicator of the collective and bold support for the MS community.

Contact your U.S. Representative today and urge him or her to co-sponsor the MS Awareness Week resolution.

These jerks at the MS Society don't give a crap about us.
All they care about is getting money for themselves and grants so they can raise their salaries.
If this bill goes through, we wont be able to get the services that we have now.
I have never had to wait longer than 1 DAY to get an MRI.
I was living in Canada and needed an MRI and the wait was 18 WEEKS. (I didn't schedule the MRI - I was coming back to the US in a couple of weeks so I just waited until then and got my MRI the same day as my doctor called in for the appointment).
A vet gets a DOG an MRI in Canada in a couple of DAYS but a human takes MONTHS!!!!
Also this bill will increase costs for walkers, wheelchairs, beds, EVERYTHING we need!!!!
These jerks at the MS Society don't have our interests at heart!
They have no interest in our well-being or a cure because then they would be out of a job.
