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.
Dive 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
