Join/Support Team Tisch MS!
My name is Laura and entered a doctor's office in NYC 15 years ago with the potential diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. An hour later, I walked out of that same office with a formal diagnosis. MS. My neurologist, Dr. Saud Sadiq told me I was going to be ok then, and continues to tell me the same now. I am beyond fortunate to be under such amazing care.
Dr. Sadiq is a trail blazer in his field. He is changing the face of MS with his research and we are a part of that! Through his facilities, the International MS Management Practice and the Tisch MS Research Center of NY, they are conducting cutting-edge research programs including the development of biomarkers, understanding disease mechanisms, and identification of a trigger that might cause the disease in addition to being the only MS center in the US that is conducting an FDA-approved Phase I stem cell clinical trial that has the potential to repair the damage caused by MS and reverse disability. We are watching patients step out of wheelchairs and it's absolutely amazing!
While I am not a runner in this years marathon, I support Team Tisch MS whole-heartedly. Their work is my future!
If you can support our team by making a tax-deductible donation, please do! It means the world to me and your contribution will make a direct impact on the progress we are making in understanding MS in order to find a cure for this disease.
