MS LifeLines Ambassadors
Sometimes it helps to talk to someone who understands what it's like living with relapsing MS and taking Rebif. The Peer Connection Program can help. If you are new to Rebif therapy or considering Rebif for your relapsing MS, you can speak one-on-one with an MS LifeLines Ambassador.
When you contact the The Peer Connection Program, provide MS LifeLines with information that you would like to share about yourself so that you can be matched with an MS LifeLines Ambassador who can understand your concerns and share his or her experience.
Meet some MS LifeLines Ambassadors who have chosen to share their insights and personal stories of living with relapsing MS! View personal video introductions of some MS LifeLines Ambassadors, or read the online journals of MS LifeLines Ambassadors David and Joni.
