March is National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Month. MS is a difficult disease to diagnose and to treat. It affects 1 in 700 people in the United States . (from Understanding Autoimmune Disease:NIAD)

There are many organizations that provide information, support and funding for people with MS, caregivers, family and friends and for physicians and researchers. Here is a short list:

Often when the diagnosis of MS hits, people may feel that it means a death sentence. It helps a great deal to find a doctor that specializes in MS. There are often clinics in major research hospitals also.

Online support, support groups and blogs offer people with MS a way to connect with others in the same position. These are sometimes based on weight loss groups where members can share their struggles and their triumphs.
