THE STORY:

March is MSA Awareness month. Help the Rex Griswold Foundation Raise Funds for research in honor of memory of a patients. Share your story or help share ours. Don't know what MSA IS?

Multiple System Atrophy (MSA) is a neurodegenerative disease affecting the central and autonomic nervous systems. It has features and symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease, but is more severe, more rapidly progressive and much more limited in treatment options. MSA is rare, affecting approximately four individuals in 100,000, but its impact on those it touches is devastating.

WHAT ARE THE
SYMPTOMS OF MSA?

MSA has symptoms similar to Parkinson’s disease, including stiffness, tremors and trouble walking, but in a much more severe and rapidly progressing form. In addition, MSA patients develop a number of other problems, including fluctuations in blood pressure, frequent fainting, severe sleep apnea and severe swallowing and speech symptoms that can progress to the inability to swallow and speak.

Like Parkinson’s, MSA is a neurodegenerative disease affecting the central and autonomic nervous systems. However, MSA’s is more severe, more rapidly progressive and much more limited in treatment options.

My mom (also an educator ) was diagnosed with MS when I was in college. She is much luckier than most that are afflicted with the disease but still struggles with memory issues , pain and her balance. I donate for Tara's mom and for the hope that a cure can be found for MSA. <3 2 years ago
