    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Yes, the MS meds are expensive. Your friend may be able to get financial aid through that drug company. That's what I did. I hope your friend receives the help he needs.
