About the MS society
Way back in 1945, Silvia Lawry & her sister, Alice, formed the MS society out of necessity. After their brother, Bernard, was diagnosed with the disease, they found that there was little hope for recovery, but not only were doctors stumped about the cause or cure, they weren't doing any research to figure it out.
Setting up the MS society to help fund research, it has become the leading organization for multiple sclerosis in the world. Funding research that has lead to many advancements and breakthroughs, without their organization there's no telling where MS patients would be today.
The main goal of the National MS Society is a world free of MS. As stated on their website their mission is, "People affected by MS can live their best lives as we stop MS in its tracks, restore what has been lost and end MS forever."
Sounds like something we can all get on board with, right?!
Over the years, the MS society has provided research grants, fought for government funding, created standards for conducting MS trials, developed therapies, medications and diagnostic standards. All of which make MS easier and faster to diagnose, as well as, more treatable.
With nearly 1 million people in the US living with MS, their work is incredibly important and we need to continue to support them any way we can.

Get involved with Revive Jewelry
Every time you purchase an item from the Support Multiple Sclerosis Research Collection, we donate 10% of gross profit to the MS society. Since the creation of this collection, together we've donated over $275 to help them reach their goal of a world free of MS. Isn't that any amazing feat? But, there's still a lot of work to be done & if we work together, I'm sure we can raise that donation tenfold or even hundredfold.
