Pediatric MS Support

Reset Font Size

Overview

Parents wish for their children to be healthy and happy — to have lives without discomfort or loss — and hope to be able to protect them and keep them from harm. When a child is diagnosed with MS, the family's wishes remains the same, and the National MS Society is committed to helping ensure the very best. 

Whether the diagnosis is relatively new, or you have been searching for answers for quite some time, the words “multiple sclerosis” can be very frightening.  It is important to remember that: 

  • You are not alone — there are both social and clinical networks to support your child and family.
  • Each person’s experience with MS is different.
  • This is a hopeful time. While the cause of MS is unknown and there isn’t a cure yet, there are treatments available, and an increasing number of clinicians and researchers have taken a specific interest in better understanding diagnosis and treatment of children with MS and related disorders.
