How do we get the money? We all want to hear that an MS cure has been found, and that will happen with the right research. Research takes time but it also takes money.
Funds for research are sometimes privately funded and sometimes provided from our taxes. Congress often controls funds provided for medical research, even going so far as to designate the condition and research facility that money funds. Individual senators and representatives write and support legislation that pays for research projects. They represent us.
The question for this week is: Have you ever contacted your senator or congressman to support a particular fund raising bill? Do you think you made a difference? Will you do it again?
