Their mission is to "build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke." I see they've supported research of CVI (not CCSVI) in the past: ... 02/20/e126

Perhaps they would be more willing to grant funding for CCSVI research than NMSS. AHA's sponsors include Medtronic and Boston Scientific, both large manufacturers of stents. ... 011110.pdf

Surely the sponsors would be willing to give money to research to make money.

Great suggestion, thoughtful, informative and backed up with source links.

While I am trying to keep the hope alive that neurologists will eventually concede that proper circulation to the brain is a good thing, and that the MS Society will engage with some vascular specialists with respect to CCSVI, I am beginning to lose my sunny, optomistic attitude towards both neuros and the MS Society.

I agree that associations which that are concerned with heart and vascular health may better represent the interests of persons with multiple sclerosis.
