MS Awareness Month: March 2019
March marks MS Awareness month where, for an entire month, we intentionally focus on building greater awareness about multiple sclerosis and the MS community on the world stage. There are so many that have “heard” of MS but don’t really know what it is, let alone what’s it like for those who are living with it every day. It’s so important to spread awareness about what living with multiple sclerosis is really like in order to create a deeper understanding and continue to drive research and technology to help those fighting this disease.
Whether you’re tackling the physical, emotional, or mental symptoms of multiple sclerosis, you are not alone. Keep reading to discover special awareness month opportunities and ways to connect:

Each week, we’ll be highlighting a different theme that affects many of those who are living with MS. We will have dedicated Q&A discussions, polls, and social media prompts around these themes which you are welcome to participate in, share, or simply read along. See below for the weekly themes:
- Invisible illness: How do you explain to others the emotional and mental toll having an invisible illness creates?
- Diagnosis: If you could say something to your newly diagnosed self, what would you say?
- Relationships: How has MS affected your sexual relationships?
