MS Awareness Week: Share Videos with MS Community

I was asked to post this (DR):

In the spirit of raising awareness for MS during MS Awareness Week, I wanted to share with you a program MS LifeLines is launching on Monday: Words 4 MS.

Words 4 MS has been created to empower and inspire people in the MS community by encouraging them to share their stories. The program will share individual stories from people living with MS, or people who know someone impacted by MS through selected videos on Video submissions should follow the theme of Words 4 MS and include four words to describe a personal achievement (examples: Still Full of Hope, My Mom, My Hero).

People can submit their video and access the full program guidelines and submission criteria at (Website will be live on Monday, 3/14) Video submissions will be accepted from March 14th through July 13th.

We are hoping you could share this program with your readers via your blog and/or email and continue to raise awareness for this chronic disease. We have included below a brief email you may use to help us get the word out about Words 4 MS, if you would like.

Email to your readers:

Will Never Stop Fighting

Still Full Of Hope

My Mom, My Hero

These are just a few examples of how to tell a story in four words about your personal experience with MS. Are there four inspiring, thought-provoking words that say how you feel, inspire you, or remind you of someone in your life who has helped you through your MS journey?

If so, MS LifeLines is asking you to share your story through video!

Through Words 4 MS, people living with MS or who have a loved one living with MS– like you – will be able to share their individual stories through video that might be revealed on and other possible media outlets. We encourage you to submit a video that showcases how your life has been impacted by MS. Video submissions should follow the theme of Words 4 MS and include your personal, 10-second video depiction of how MS has impacted your lives using four words that describe this story (examples: Still Full of Hope, My Mom, My Hero).

We are asking you to help demonstrate how many people are touched by MS while also helping to raise awareness of this condition by sharing your four words today! Please visit for the official guidelines and submission criteria.

MS LifeLines is an educational support service for people living with MS and their families. programs LifeLines is sponsored by EMD Serono, Inc. and Pfizer Inc.
