MS Canada announces live CCSVI webcast
I have signed up and forwarded a few questions (see the following)
Wed. April 7, 2010, you need to register, I am sure you ALL have questions lets show OUR support for this MS Canada iniative. I just hope its not just window dressing especially a week before they kick off the biggest fund raiser of the year The MS Walk.
There seems to be confusion amongst various MS Chapters throughout the Country. Alberta seems to have taken the position that a contributor to various fund raising events sponsored by the MS Society can designate their contribution to CCSVI research. This will be done by checking off a box found on the donation form.
Question #1 is this the position of the MS Society of Canada as a rule
Question #2 If yes, how will these contributions be tracked and accounted for, who will receive this research funding?
Question #3, How much money was raised for research by MS Canada for the year 2009.
Question #4 How much money has been or is proposed to be spent on CCSVI Research by the MS Society for the year 2010.
Question #5 Does the MS Society support the various movements within Canada such as msliberation and ccsvictorycanada organizations of like minded concerned Canadian citizens in there quest to have testing of CCSVI by trained technicians (CCSVI protocols) made available to all Canadian MS patients.
Question #6 Does the MS Society support the efforts of like minded groups (as described above) when taking the initiative to organize/mobilize in an effort to Educate the disenfranchised of Canadian Society ( medical, political, general public) on all things CCSVI and the potential of it being a game changer in the treatment of MS.
