Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
  • equipment assistance
  • 35 self-help groups
  • educational programs
  • advocacy

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.
