MSF Cooling Program Begins


Applications are now being accepted for the MSF’s 2010 Cooling Program. A variety of free cooling accessories are offered, including bandanas, neckties, hats, wristbands and two types of cooling vests.

Use these items during the hot summer months to prevent overheating, which can lead to weakness, fatigue, visual disturbances, and the exacerbation of other symptoms. While the heat does not cause your MS to worsen, it can alter the passage of nerve impulses and slow you down.

All applications are confidential and will be reviewed by the grant committee. Applications can be submitted online or completed applications can be mailed to Multiple Sclerosis Foundation Cooling Program, 6350 North Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale, FL 33309. To find the application on this website, go to “Programs and Activities” and then click on “Cooling Program.”
