International MPS Awareness Day

May is a very special month for the National MPS Society. The Society and its members celebrate International MPS Awareness Day on May 15 and on that day we:

  • Honor everyone in the MPS and ML community
  • Recognize all the children and adults diagnosed with MPS and ML
  • Think about the loved ones we have lost
  • Thank the doctors and scientists who are dedicated to finding cures for MPS and ML
  • Remember one another, and are thankful for the strength and support we both give and receive
  • Acknowledge the parents, siblings, and caregivers who work tirelessly to support those with MPS and ML

 

 

 

While every day is an opportunity to grow awareness, we are creating initiatives that we hope you will share with others
