My mother, Ida Comeau Richard, was diagnosed with Olivopontocerebellar Atrophy (now known as Multiple System Atrophy or MSA) in the mid 1990's and sadly passed away in 1998 at age 55. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, her loss has left an irreplaceable hole in the lives of all who knew and loved her.

There was not much information available about Multiple System Atrophy back then but thanks to the pioneering work of the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition word about Multiple System Atrophy has spread, researchers are taking more of an interest and connections have been made among families coping with this disease.   I support this organization and their goals and am asking for your help. 

Won't you please donate now to help those with Multiple System Atrophy?

The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition have established the Multiple System Atrophy Research Fund to support finding the cause of Multiple System Atrophy and eventually a cure.   Currently this fund has $100,000 available for 2013.  I am asking for your support to increase this research fund to get more money into the hands of MSA researchers as soon as possible.

Will you help us by donating now?

The Multiple System Atrophy Coalition is run entirely by volunteers and offers the following:

-  Multiple System Atrophy research fund to find a cause and cure for MSA

- Support for Multiple System Atrophy patients and caregivers through their website and toll free MSA information hotline 1-866-737-5999

- Annual conference for MSA patients and their families

- Education to physicians, healthcare providers and patients/caregivers

- MSA Advocacy

Will you give now to offer hope to those currently struggling with Multiple System Atrophy?
