About Us

susanavieraThe Susana Viera Multiple Sclerosis Foundation is made up of a group citizens seeking to educate and provide support and healthcare services to the English and Portuguese speaking community of southeastern Massachusetts affected by Multiple Sclerosis. The organization was founded by a small group of healthcare professionals seeking to educate people and their families who suffer from neurological diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis.

A major goal is to provide educational material and informational sessions in both English and Portuguese (and if available- in Spanish). The foundation was co-founded by Susana P. Viera, a bilingual Nurse Practitioner, who was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis approximately one year prior to the realization of the foundation and its mission.

The members of the foundation ask that you or your company help us reach our goal of raising funds to support its mission and sponsor a team in the annual Dartmouth MS Walk-A-Thon held every April by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, Greater New England Chapter. The funds raised by our foundation’s annual event will not only be used for future education and out-reach programs for those with MS and other neurological illnesses, but also allow for more people to join the movement and stomp out Multiple Sclerosis.
