Right now approximately 13,000 Americans and countless more people around the world are fighting a rare and terminal disease called multiple system atrophy (MSA.) The neurodegenerative disease strikes people in the prime of life. It slowly and progressively takes away their abilities to walk, talk, swallow, and breathe. It takes away loved ones, spouses, parents, grandparents, friends, and coworkers. While it takes many things from patients including their abilty to work and be productive, and ultimately life itself, what MSA can't take (#MSACantTake) is the humor, love, hope and will to fight of MSA patients and their families.
It is a horrible disease and it cannot be defeated alone.
Over the past two years we have funded 17 research grants totaling $700,000. Your donations and fundraising efforts will allow us to continue funding this very important research.
