About Multiple System Atrophy
Multiple System Atrophy is a serious, life limiting neurological disease. It is so rare that most doctors have not even heard of it. Currently, MSA has no cure, no known cause nor any specific risk factors. People diagnosed with Multiple System Atrophy are swiftly robbed of their ability to walk, talk, chew, swallow and eventually breathe. They also become physically reliant on family members, friends or relatives to carry out most aspects related to daily living. For those diagnosed, it is a death sentence. There are no drugs that stop it's relentless progression. Research, education, support and advocacy are desperately needed.
About Multiple System Atrophy Awareness Month
In 2010, March was first officially declared as MSA Awareness Month. Since then, this annual event has grown to become a rallying point for the global Multiple System Atrophy community. Thousands of patients, care partners and advocates join their voices to share their personal stories and raise funds for the cause. As the nation's oldest and largest organization dedicated to this disease, and the leading nonprofit funder of global MSA research, the Multiple System Atrophy Coalition is encouraging everyone to support MSA Awareness Month.
