We understand that people who are living with MS exist in a world that is much bigger than their disease. So we created a program with a message of empowerment to help them rise above their MS.
Above MS™ from Biogen offers personalized services and extra support to help people living with MS in different aspects of their lives. We’re here to help throughout the MS journey, offering one-on-one MS support over the phone, relevant disease education, and healthy lifestyle information.
Please keep in mind that the healthcare team is your primary resource when it comes to your relapsing MS and treatment.
It’s our hope that we can support you in different aspects of your life—from talking to your doctor about your treatment plan to hosting a dinner party in your home. No matter what you’re doing, we understand that it’s helpful to hear how other people with MS have done it. That’s where our expert contributors come in.
Our MS expert contributors are a very special part of the website. Everyone who contributes to AboveMS.com either has MS, is knowledgeable about MS, or is an expert in their field—including a fitness instructor, an HR specialist, and an occupational therapist. Here, they’ll share their experiences with you through articles, videos, and more. With their help, we hope to create a community where people can share their insights and expertise and learn from others who know what it’s like to live with MS. They’ll provide their tips on everything from traveling with MS to creating exercise routines.
You’ll also find articles from Biogen, providing you with additional information on understanding MS, addressing lifestyle changes, and more. And as much as we’d like to help you find a specific Biogen treatment, we cannot as this is a decision that must be made between you and your doctor. But we can help you learn about the different types of treatments from pills to infusions. Be sure to discuss how you are feeling and treatment options with your doctor. Together, you can decide which treatment may be right for you.
Take a look around, read some articles, or watch a video or two. You might be surprised by what you find.
