TurnFirst Annual Campaign

For more than ten years, the TurnFirst Foundation has been providing support to people newly diagnosed with MS and their families to help them get off to the right start.  As renowned neurologist, Dr. Carlo Tornatore says, “For the newly diagnosed patient,  the bottom line is first impressions.  It’s how it’s presented to the patient at the very beginning, and that sets the tone for the whole rest of the disease.  The patients who start out right will save themselves enormous amounts of psychic energy....and there is no question that doing so helps them do better over the long haul.”  TurnFirst helps thousands of patients start their MS journey each year through its website www.TurnFirst.org.
