Globally every month of March is regarded as Multiple System Atrophy Awareness Month. A month dedicated to creating more awareness for MSA.
An idea originally bathed by Bob and Susan Summers of the “Miracles of MSA” in a post written on February 13, 2010. The idea has since caught on, going on to being adopted and echoed the world over.
March is synonymous with spring time. A time of renewal and rebirth, a fitting time of the year to reflect and dream big about her role to promote awareness for MSA.
A strong needs exist for more awareness and education regarding diagnosis and management of this rare disease.
