management, nutrition and other topics of interest to patients.

Community outreach activities such as radio and television

interviews, articles in newspapers and magazines, recreational

activities such as MS Walk 3k-5k and World Multiple Sclerosis

Patient Assistance

The main objective of the program is to help MS patients who have a particular need and who have no way to cover their cost, including the following: · Walkers, walking sticks · Crutches · Bath chair · Safety grips · Cold vests · Forms of subsidies and benefits · Participation in several scientific studies · Guidance and support to patients and families · Partial payment of deductibles, studies or laboratories We invite you to contact the foundation for more information and to assist you in the qualification process. Support Groups The Support Groups we sponsor give patients and their families the opportunity to share their experiences with like-minded people who face the challenges of this disease day by day. Meetings include group dynamics, educational talks, workshops, exercises and a friendly sharing among participants. The Support Groups are organized in seven zones throughout Puerto Rico. Contact persons voluntarily keep informed and united the patients of their respective zones. Call us at 787.723.2331 to put you in contact with a Support Group near you.

Wellness

Coinciding with the fifteenth anniversary of the foundation, and with the support of instructors from the National Multiple Sclerosis Society (NMSS), in 2015 we developed a wellness program that seeks to encourage patients to adopt exercise to their daily routine, in order to help improve their physical and mental condition. The program incorporates aquatic therapy, water aerobics, yoga, Pilates and equinotherapy.
We want a better quality of life for you

Programs

To achieve the objectives of the Vision and Mission of the foundation, four programs have been created that cover

the medical, therapeutic and educational aspects of multiple sclerosis. We approach the community that suffers

from this condition taking each activity to different parts of the island in a way that reaches evenly to most of the

population possible.
