About Us

MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS ALLIANCE OF VIRGINIA

The Multiple Sclerosis Alliance of Virginia (MSAV) focuses on helping people living with MS by providing programs and events for people living with MS, including veterans (our Founder is a Veteran). Our Offices are found at the Roanoke Area MS Center (RAMS) in Salem Va. 

The MSAV educates and empowers people with MS, their care partners, family, and friends. We will guide people to other organizations that can aid with special needs, services, “and” financial assistive technology. 

The primary mission of our 100% Volunteer organization is to maintain active support groups, supply educational programs, fun activities and events and help others start upbeat groups in their community. Each year we host a Patient Conference and a special event called “Cinderella’s Closet,” a time to mingle with others who “get it,” hear the latest discoveries and treatments and have fun too! 

We also contribute to awareness in the community. Please invite us to speck at your school, civic organization, business, nursing home, church, “or” club. We want more people to understand this unpredictable, most times invisible disease. 

The MSAV is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
