The AdrenaLAN Summer 2014 Event has been postponed. We are still continuously trying to raise the funding required to purchase all of the equipment needed in order to have a successful event.
Our June event has been postponed until we can reach the funding we need in order to buy the equipment we need in order to have a successful event.
$1, $5, $20 or more -- every little bit will help. Please help me reach our goal and support our cause in finding a cure for Multiple Sclerosis!!
The medication Jay is on is called Avonex (Interferon Beta-1a). Avonex is a weekly intramuscular injection. Avonex is shipped to Jay once a month and includes 4 auto-injector pens. The retail cost of each shipment is approximately $5,000. Jay's insurance is soo kind that it pays 75% of this, leaving them with a $1,250 a month prescription bill.
Multiple Sclerosis is not a curable disease, YET. There are several medications and treatments available but only to slow down the progression and to try and prevent flare-ups. Medications and treatments range from several different oral medications to daily, weekly, and monthly injections. In severe cases, people may also undergo steroid treatments and/or plasma exchange. ALL the medications and treatments may cause side effects ranging from mood swings, weight gain, and flushing of the skin to chest pains and liver damage. One of the medications may even cause PML, a brain infection that is usually fatal. ALL the medications also cause an increased risk of infections such as a cold, but the one everyone tries to avoid is Pneumonia.
