Get involved and take action this Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month.

It’s our favorite time of the year. All over the nation, people are coming together to support those living with and impacted by multiple sclerosis. We want to help you join in these efforts and spread awareness for MS.

Below are a few ways that you may consider getting involved this month. You can also download a Facebook cover photo or profile photo to show your support by clicking those links or saving the images below.

CapLearn more. Brush up on the facts about MS so that you can have more informed conversations with people in your community as well as with your health care provider. To be prepared for these conversations, we recommend learning more about the symptoms of multiple sclerosis or testing your knowledge with this quiz.

Speech bubble Spread information. Get involved by helping spread information and awareness. You can help get the word out by sharing information on social media, sending emails or simply having conversations with the people in your life about multiple sclerosis. This month, we are sharing information and motivational quotes on the Lift MS Facebook page. We hope that you check it out and maybe even share a post or two with your friends.  

Arrows Share your story. Help others understand what it is like to live with multiple sclerosis by sharing your experiences. We shared a few tips that may help you get the conversation started in a previous post titled “MS 101: How to Talk About MS” and you are always welcome to leave us a comment here if you have any additional tips to offer. You can also find and connect with other members of the MS community on the Lift MS Facebook page. You never know, your story might give someone the Lift that they need.  

Community Find support. Finding support is essential when living with multiple sclerosis. Teva has many great resources, like our live events and teleconferences, that may fit into your schedule. There is also the Lift MS Facebook page which is filled with MS patients and caregivers sharing stories and supporting one another.      

Shoe Get involved. Getting involved might help give you a Lift while you give others a Lift. Joining an event, such as Walk MS, allows you to show your support while being surrounded with others who understand what you are going through. You can also find local groups to volunteer with. You might even make a few connections while supporting the community.   

Shirt Wear orange. Wearing orange is one of the easiest ways to show your support. You can use your outfit as a way to start conversations about multiple sclerosis with anyone you meet.  

Clipboard Be proactive. Work with your health care provider to manage your multiple sclerosis and symptoms. We want to empower you to be your own advocate, and offer support through Shared Solutions®. Give us a call at 1-800-887-8100 or visit our website to learn more.

We are honored to stand beside you and support you throughout Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Month. We hope that you join us on the Lift MS Facebook page as we celebrate all the wonderful members of the MS community. Let us know how you plan to get involved this month by leaving a comment below.

  • Wendi | March 06, 2017
    I was diagnosed with MS in October 2006, I was able to work full-time until June 2013. I am a single mother of two boys soon to be 13 and 17. Everyday is a fight with pain,fatigue amongst other things I won't get into, but I'm thankful God continues to use me to show how AWESOME and powerful He is throughout this process. I'm still walking, need a cane for distances, I'm still driving myself!!!!

  • kitasha | March 06, 2017
    Having MS has really changed my life. It's every day living life on a wonder. Walking on egg shells. It has brought my children and I even closer to God. Thanks to all my MS family, friends, and Facebook for all the support. It helps to know you're not the only one going through daily crisis. Thanks you once again!
    • Teva's Lift MS Team | March 07, 2017

    I have been diagnosed with MS for 15 years going on 16. It is a hard battle, but every day is different. You need to talk to others and share your thoughts. Support is good for your mind. Just doing something to stay active as much as you possibly can. Anything helps!
