The mission of the SDS/MSA Support Group is to gather information from each group of people involved (patients, caregivers, family members, and physicians) and disseminate that information to all. The SDS/MSA Support Group is an information center and a "helping hand" for affected people. Through various programs, including regional patient/caregiver support group meetings, support of local groups, a toll free help line and a Web site, the SDS/MSA Support Group can reach many more people in need. The support group also works closely with physicians who are newly involved with the disease as well as those who are involved in the essential research to discover a cause, modes of treatment, and, hopefully, a cure. Information about the disease is provided on the group's Web site and through educational meetings. By sharing information, resources, and support, the SDS/MSA Support Group hopes to create a "circle of hope" for those affected by SDS/MSA. On the West Coast, those seeking MSA support may call Vera James, a member of the group, at 1-866-737-5999.
