#MySupportHero Celebration

Celebrate #Mysupporthero

Honor your support hero during MS Awareness Month

Many unsung heroes provide invaluable support and inspiration for people living with multiple sclerosis (MS). To recognize these individuals, Biogen is excited to be working with MSWorld, MS Focus, Can Do MS, and MS Views & News. This March, we’ll kick off the second year of the #MySupportHero initiative during MS Awareness Month.

#MySupportHero celebrates individuals who have played such an important role in providing people with MS help, care, laughs, and inspiration when they’re needed most. This program is our way to help the community say THANK YOU for all that support partners do!

Brian thanking his MS Support Hero

“I don’t know if I would’ve been able to get through my MS diagnosis without the support heroes in my life. I’m thankful to have my family and friends by my side, and I’m looking forward to celebrating them this March.”
—Brian M., living with MS since 2007

Honoring the MS community

#MySupportHero offers a way to recognize family members, friends, and healthcare professionals who have made an impact in the lives of those living with MS. There are also countless patient advocacy groups, MS ambassadors, and others in the MS community who offer support, education, and resources to raise awareness for MS.

Last year, the #MySupportHero initiative helped raise awareness of MS and had a strong response from the community. This March, we are continuing our awareness efforts by working with additional advocacy partners and providing new ways to participate on social media. This will help recognize even more people who support the MS community and enable them to rise Above MS!

Raising awareness for MS is a team effort

We’d also like to thank advocacy organizations for helping us spread the word about #MySupportHero. They use a variety of resources to provide support and education for the whole MS community. You can learn more about #MySupportHero and find other support partner educational tools by visiting:
