MS LifeLines Ambassadors who understand
Whether you are someone taking Rebif® (interferon beta-1a) or are a care partner of someone who does, we understand what you are going through. And sometimes it helps to talk to someone who “gets” what it's like living with relapsing multiple sclerosis and on treatment. We are a group of patients and care partners who are here to help you in a number of ways. For example:
- If you are new to Rebif treatment or considering Rebif, you can speak 1-on-1 with an MS LifeLines Ambassador
- You can share personal, firsthand experiences to learn all you can about treating MS
- You can find inspiration and get practical MS tips
- Spouses, family members, or friends who help care for someone with relapsing MS can find support
Have a 1-on-1 conversation with us through the Peer Connection Program. Just call 1-866-783-5189.Learn more at MS LifeLines
Steve’s story: Paying it forward
People ask me if I experienced the same things that they’re going through. They want to connect with somebody who understands. I get that, because I had somebody help me who had navigated these waters before.
There are so many people who don’t know anybody with MS—they don’t have anyone to reach out to who can provide them with information. It sometimes helps to know that there’s somebody else out there who’s had the same fears and the same struggles.
I can help people by showing them how to think positively. I reinvented myself based on the new things my body was telling me. I show them they can still have a rewarding and fulfilling life, despite the fact they may have to do things a little differently now. I never allowed MS to take away my joy. I just learned how to chase after my joy in a different way.
