Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada

How legacy gifts help Canadians living with MS

Decades ago, when an individual was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, they were given a prescription to “go home and rest.” There were no therapies available.

Thankfully, since that time, much progress has been made. Donor-supported research has led to significant improvements in the imaging techniques used to diagnose MS, and catalyzed the development of 10 disease-modifying therapies. Every day, donor-supported service programs provide people living with MS and their families with the critical help they need.

Despite much progress, significant questions about the cause and cure for MS remain unanswered, while every day, three more Canadians hear the words “you have multiple sclerosis.”

We believe in a future free from multiple sclerosis. With your support, we can help generations of Canadians with MS live as freely as possible from the physical, mental and financial challenges that living with the disease presents.
