Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a rare, degenerative neurological disease that affects multiple body systems. It progresses quickly, attacking the brain and spinal cord causing patients to swiftly lose the ability to walk independently and manage their own personal care. Patients survive, on average, just 6 to 10 years after first symptom onset. The MSA Coalition is a 501(c)3 charity "focused primarily on facilitating and funding MSA research that will lead to the discovery of a cure for this rare and fatal neurodegenerative disorder. Until a cure is found, The MSA Coalition will also provide patient/caregiver education and emotional support, education for healthcare professionals, and leadership in MSA advocacy activities." Your financial support will fund much needed research for this rare disease while providing compassionate support and informative resources now for families in need. Thanks so much for your generous support!
