The Facts About MS
Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world, and women get MS three times more often than men. MS is unpredictable and often disabling, and the average diagnosis is between 14 and 40 years.
Women Against MS (WAMS) is a powerful network of women building MS awareness and raising research funds to end MS. Since launching in Vancouver in 2015, WAMS has raised over $500,000 towards a new generation of ground-breaking Canadian researchers working together to find a cure for multiple sclerosis.
