Realizing that much of the current attention is focused on more widely known diseases, Multiple System Atrophy is overlooked. MSA patients are confronted with a dim prognosis and left with few options. The Defeat MSA: Joseph G. Fortier MSA Foundation hopes to fund a multidisciplinary and multifaceted academic and clinical center to treat MSA and other rare movement disorders. And by doing so, our goal is to contribute toward finding more treatments for those living with MSA today, more support for their caregivers and ultimately to conquer MSA by finding a cure!
