AF Reflect with AISM
AF REFLECT EYEWEAR join AISM to support those who face multiple sclerosis on a daily basis.
The Italian Multiple Sclerosis Society (AISM)
The Italian Multiple Sclerosis Society (AISM) is the only organization in Italy that addresses every aspect of multiple sclerosis (MS), through advocating for the rights of people with MS and providing services and through orienting, promoting, and financing scientific research.
MS is among the most common major diseases of the central nervous system. It is chronic, unpredictable, progressive and can lead to serious disability.
In order to assure that PEOPLE with MS can achieve their life goals, our responsibility is to provide accessible information, support and services to every person with MS and his or her family. Every day we strive to achieve this, through the MS Society’s network of 98 local branches and regional coordinating centers present throughout Italy, and with over 13,000 volunteers. This coordinated effort guarantees that no person with MS is alone in facing their disease, but rather can find the answers they need through the MS Society.
The MS Society’s commitment to RESEARCH focuses on identifying effective therapies and treatment, slowing the progression of the disease, and one day finding a definitive cure. This requires concrete resources and thanks to the establishment of the MS Society’s research foundation – FISM in 1998, these efforts have been rewarded.
The challenges of MS can be faced and overcome together. Today, with even more impact than 50 years ago, we can make a difference for people living with MS within the framework of programs and policies on healthcare, inclusion, assistance, welfare, employment, civic participation and research. This is possible thanks to all of the women and men, young people, activists, volunteers, members, scientists, donors, healthcare professions and every other stakeholder who has chosen to be by our side. The priceless amount of effort, time, expertise and commitment given every day are the ingredients that make the MS Movement great.
Together, one victory after another, we have accomplished a great deal. But we can and must continue. The future can be brighter, starting from today. For this reason, we ask each person to be a part of the MS Movement.
