March is designated as Multiple System Atrophy Awareness Month all over the world to increase public awareness of this progressive neurodegenerative disorder that affects the autonomic functions of the body.
There is a need to create more awareness for Multiple System Atrophy.
Individuals with Multiple System Atrophy lose the ability to walk, talk, chew, swallow, and even breathe over the course of a few years.
Apart from members of the health team, such as therapists, nurses, psychologists, neurologists and so on, patients with MSA are also dependent on their immediate care givers like friends, family members and relatives who also share in the burden of the disease.
There are no specific risk factors or scientifically known causes of Multiple System Atrophy.
MSA currently has no cure.
Lack of awareness about Multiple System Atrophy has hindered research and the ability of MSA researchers to obtain funding for their work
Public support and greater awareness of the need for research funding can aid in the discovery of the cause of and a cure for Multiple System Atrophy.
Please support the campaign today. Lend your voice to the fight against MSA.
