If you haven’t already signed the petition, sign on today. Then tell your friends and family to sign. The deadline is February 12. In March, MS activists will take all the petition signatures to Capitol Hill when they ask legislators for a significant increase in federal funding for MS research. The success of this petition will help move us closer to a world free of MS. Click here to become an MS activist.
