    Just think of all the people with MS, that money could go to make more comfortable.
    Not all, but some of these studies are inane & redundant. Waste of money.
    Love, Sally

    Sally, I'm another one who is in favor of more attention and assistance for those who have to deal with MS day in, day out, year after disabling year. Guess they keep on chasing after these ideas: genome project, stem cells, statins, you name it--in the hope that some answers will be forthcoming.

    I have no doubt that they're on their way to some answers but it's a slow process, and in the meantime--here everyone is, many in need of help in so many ways.

    On the subject of funding for MS and other neurological disorders, a new center for neurologic diseases is going to open in 2016 in Boston as part of Brigham and Women's Hospital and is currently getting its funding together:
