The National MS Society is a collective of passionate individuals who want to do something about MS now—to move together toward a world free of multiple sclerosis. MS stops people from moving. We exist to make sure it doesn't.
We help each person address the challenges of living with MS through our 50-state network of chapters. The Society helps people affected by MS by funding cutting-edge research, driving change through advocacy, facilitating professional education, and providing programs and services that help people with MS and their families move their lives forward.
The Greater Illinois Chapter is comprised of all the Illinoisans who have joined the movement to create a world free of multiple sclerosis and the work that they do through the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. Volunteers, staff, healthcare workers, researchers, donors, advocates and partners together represent the Greater Illinois Chapter and all the many ways it’s possible to drive research for a cure and to address the challenges of everyone affected by MS. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society is the only voluntary health organization dedicated to the prevention, treatment, alleviation and cure of MS. Not only that, but we are the only voluntary organization that meets the standards of all major agencies that rate non-profit groups.
