For over fifty years, the National MS Society has been dedicated to its mission of mobilizing people and resources to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. The Indiana State Chapter of the National MS Society provides help for today--through numerous programs for families living with MS--and hope for tomorrow through national research to find a cure.
The Indiana State Chapter was founded in 1954. Today, nearly 10,000 Hoosiers and their families benefit from the National MS Society, Indiana State Chapter through:
A comprehensive information and referral center, with detailed and specific information for clients like insurance questions, symptom and disease information, local neurologists, physical therapists, cognitive programs and even suicide prevention.
35 self-help groups
We host several local events to raise money to support our work: WalkMS, On the Move luncheon, and MS Awareness Day with the Gary SouthShore RailCats.
In addition, the National MS Society continues to be a leader in research to find a cure for MS:
The National MS Society has funded basic and
clinical research that has lead to each of the six approved disease modifying drugs for MS.
