It’s one of our favorite times of the year, because we’re honoring you—the MS community. Across the nation, people are coming together to empower those living with and impacted by MS. Below are a few ways that you can show your support and get involved during MS Awareness Month.

CapDive into knowledge. Brush up on the facts about MS so that you can have more informed conversations with the people in your community and with your healthcare provider. To be prepared for these conversations, take a look at the symptoms of MS or test your knowledge with this quiz.

Speech bubble Spread information. Get involved by helping spread information and awareness. You can get the word out by sharing information on social media, sending emails, or simply having conversations about MS with the people in your life. Teva's Shared Solutions® provides educational brochures you can share with your family, friends, and Care Partners.

Arrows Tell your story. Help others understand what it is like to live with an "invisible" illness by sharing your experiences on social media or right here on the Lift MS® blog. Here are a few tips get the conversation started. You can also connect with other members of the MS community on the Lift MS® Facebook page.  

Community Find support. Having support is essential when living with MS. Teva has many great resources, including certified nurse support and financial assistance. There’s also the Lift MS® community, which is filled with stories, education, and motivation for MS patients and Care Partners alike.

Shoe Get involved. Joining an event, such as Walk MS, allows you to show your support while being surrounded with others who understand what you’re going through. You can also find local groups to volunteer with. Who knows, you might even make a few new connections while supporting the community.

Shirt Sport your orange. Wearing orange is one of the easiest ways to show your support. You can use your outfit as a way to start conversations about MS with anyone you meet.  

Clipboard Be proactive. Work with your healthcare provider to manage your MS symptoms and stay committed to your therapy. We want to empower you to be your own advocate and offer support through Teva's Shared Solutions®. Give us a call at 1-800-887-8100 or visit our website to learn more.

We’re honored to stand beside you throughout MS Awareness Month. Join us on the Lift MS® Facebook page as we recognize all the wonderful members of the MS community. Let us know how you plan to get involved this month by leaving a comment below.

  • Wendi | March 06, 2017
    I was diagnosed with MS in October 2006, I was able to work full-time until June 2013. I am a single mother of two boys soon to be 13 and 17. Everyday is a fight with pain,fatigue amongst other things I won't get into, but I'm thankful God continues to use me to show how AWESOME and powerful He is throughout this process. I'm still walking, need a cane for distances, I'm still driving myself!!!!

  • kitasha | March 06, 2017
    Having MS has really changed my life. It's every day living life on a wonder. Walking on egg shells. It has brought my children and I even closer to God. Thanks to all my MS family, friends, and Facebook for all the support. It helps to know you're not the only one going through daily crisis. Thanks you once again!
    • Teva's Lift MS® Team | March 07, 2017

  • Angela | April 23, 2017
    I have been diagnosed with MS for 15 years going on 16. It is a hard battle, but every day is different. You need to talk to others and share your thoughts. Support is good for your mind. Just doing something to stay active as much as you possibly can. Anything helps!

    Both my mother and one of my half brothers had MS. My mother passed away in 1981 (not from the MS) and my half brother passed away in 2004. I currently live in central Florida and would like to do volunteer work with people with MS.
  • Hallie | March 18, 2018
    I have MS and my doctors are very numb dumb as to what I am going thru. They tell me cause I don't look, or act but have all the symptoms, they don't know what to do. I live in a small town where there are no good doctors. The good doctors that were here have all left this town. So I live every day with death slowly taking over. With every day a challenge. Just coping. Thank you for your site here
    • Teva's Lift MS® Team | March 19, 2018
      Thanks for sharing your story, Hallie. We’re sorry to hear you are struggling.
  • Virginia  | March 20, 2018
    I was diagnosed with MS 4 years ago. Every morning when I wake up I stretch and am so grateful that I can get out of bed and live my life. Someone looking at me would never guess that I have MS but the uncertainty of the future is the hardest part for me.
    • Teva's Lift MS® Team | March 21, 2018
      Sometimes it can be difficult to stay positive, Virginia. We are here to give you a lift if you ever need it.
  • SARAH | March 12, 2019
    I was diagnosed with MS a couple years ago. It is very difficult to cope with at times. It is just one day at a time. Its good to know im not alone. We all will get through this.
    • Teva's Lift MS® Team | March 13, 2019
      An MS diagnosis can be an emotional experience, Sarah. It's great that you're here, and we hope you find others in the Lift MS community who can relate.
  • Nellie Jackson | March 12, 2019
    I live in rural willamina Oregon, I was diagnosed in 2012 with M.S . I have searched for groups or any kind of support out here and had no luck, I tried starting a support group and no luck, our nearest large city it 18 miles away and most don't want to drive that far for a group meeting. Do if u have ideas or can help I think it would benefit our rural community. Thank u.
    • Teva's Lift MS® Team | March 13, 2019
