This article explains the mission of the Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Coalition. It aims to bring awareness and resources to the fight against MS. It is a collection of MS groups that are supporting the concept of one team with one dream--a world free from MS. Different MS groups agree on critical issues like robust funding for MS research, accelerating access to unemployment benefits for people with MS, and encouraging more medical students to become MS specialists.
