MS AWARENESS MONTH - MONTH OF MAY
Is held each year during the month May and culminates on World MS Day which is celebrated internationally. In Australia we all try to Kiss Goodbye to MS during May. Click here to learn more.
What is Kiss Goodbye to MS?
An initiative of MS Australia (including us at MS Queensland), Kiss Goodbye to MS calls on people with MS, their friends, family and colleagues to raise funds for vital research into a cure and for services for people living with the disease.
How can I help?
- Host a Kiss Goodbye to MS fundraiser and register your event on the website.
- Wear, dare or share red or red lipstick during May and help spread the word about MS.
- Donate to the MS cause to fund vital research and support services.
What do the donations raised go towards?
All donations made on the Kiss Goodbye to MS website go towards preventing and treating the symptoms of multiple sclerosis, as well as providing support and services for people with MS. Australian scientists are optimistic that a cure can be found and it is your support that will make this happen. Click on the video below to learn more.
