What does the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation do? How and when did it start? What is it's mission and what services does it offer? Here is a little about MSF from their own lips, so to speak:
Our resources assist people who have MS, their families and caregivers, regional support groups, and healthcare professionals. Access to our programs and services is available through our interactive web site or our national, toll-free helpline staffed by caring caseworkers and peer counselors. Our priority is to serve with empathy, resourcefulness and responsibility.
All MSF services, as well as information, literature and subscriptions to our publications are provided free of charge. The MSF neither sells memberships nor requires participation in fund-raising activities by individuals or support groups.

This is a wonderful site for MSers. The Multiple Sclerosis Foundation started in 1986 and has been dedicated to working for people with MS for 25 years. What type of services and resources do they offer? Here is a short list of some of the programs they offer.
There is also a cruise for MSers, various educational programs and events, as well as a Lending Library. The foundation has so many resources available for you as a person with MS. I feel this is one of the best places out there for getting what you need. If you don't have MS and would like to support their cause, there is a way to do that as well.
Here's a link to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation. Check out all that they have available and take advantage of the programs you are eligible for. If you are a caregiver, or know someone with MS, give them the link so that they can take advantage of the many different programs and resources.
On top of the many programs available, there are plenty of articles about the most recent MS news and findings. They even have a newsletter you can sign up for as well.
