Multiple Sclerosis Foundation's annual Cooling Program kicks off Feb 1.
For most people, heat and MS don't mix. As body temperature rises, weakness, fatigue, visual disturbances, and other symptoms can become aggravated and temporarily worsen. Without help, the hot summer months can trap those with MS indoors, keeping them from countless activities associated with the season, like gardening, fishing, family outings, barbeques, and baseball games, but also making simple everyday needs, like going to work or grocery shopping, a challenge. So the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation provides the necessary help to qualifying people through the Cooling Program.
This program provides cooling vests and cooling accessories to help individuals manage heat intolerance. Applicants must be residents of the United States, document their diagnosis of MS, and demonstrate financial need. All applications are confidential and considered on a case-by-case basis. To apply, those in need can call 1-888-MSFOCUS (1-888-673-6287) or visit http://www.msfocus.org and click on Programs & Activities.
Applications are accepted from Feb. 1 to June 1 of each year. Limited funding is available so individuals in need are encouraged to apply early.
