MS Foundation Cooling Program information

Cooling Program Accepting Applications 

With the beauty of spring often comes the ugly reality of heat intolerance for those with MS. The MSF Cooling Program provides special cooling garments to help handle this troubling symptom.

As body temperature rises, weakness, fatigue, visual disturbances, and other symptoms can become aggravated and temporarily worsen. Without help, the hot months can trap those with MS indoors, keeping them from countless activities associated with the season, like gardening, fishing, family outings, barbeques, and baseball games, but also making simple everyday needs, like going to work or grocery shopping, a challenge. So the MSF provides the necessary help to qualifying people through the Cooling Program.

This program provides cooling vests and cooling accessories to help individuals manage heat intolerance. Applicants must be residents of the United States and document their diagnosis of MS. All applications are confidential and considered on a case-by-case basis. To apply, those in need can call 888-MSFOCUS (673-6287) or

Applications will be accepted until June 1. Funding is limited, so apply soon.
