Held in conjunction with MS Awareness Month, the MS Carnation Campaign has raised more than $45 million since its inception in 1976.
The campaign's timing just before Mother's Day is particularly appropriate since multiple sclerosis is diagnosed in women three times as often as men. Seventy-five per cent of people living with MS are women.
When the MS Carnation Campaign began in May 1976, carnations became a symbol of hope for people with multiple sclerosis. Hope in the form of new MS treatments that can modify the course of the disease. Hope provided through services to people with MS and their families. And hope that the funds and awareness raised by the MS Carnation Campaign will one day mean a future when no one need ever be told, “You have multiple sclerosis.”
Pre-sales of Carnation bouquets in Saskatoon, Regina and participating communities will begin March 1st and run to March 28th, 2013. The carnations will be delivered the week of Mother’s Day.
