Learn the statistics behind Multiple Sclerosis and how playing the ticket can help.

MS is two to three times more common in women than men.

Age of diagnosis

Most people are diagnosed between the ages of 20 and 50, although MS can occur in young children and older adults.

20,000 Illinois residents are living with MS

Geography plays a part

In general, MS is more common in areas farthest from the equator. However, prevalence rates may differ significantly among groups living in the same geographic area regardless of distance from the equator.

$9.5 Million has been raised from the MS Project Ticket

Women affected most

The recent prevalence study shows MS is three times more common in women than in men (73% vs. 26%), suggesting that hormones may also play a significant role in determining susceptibility to MS.

$600,000 raised for MS Research Fund

Ethnic Background

Research has demonstrated that MS occurs in most ethnic groups, including African Americans, Asians, and Hispanics/Latinos, but is most common amongst Caucasians of northern European ancestry. Susceptibility rates vary among these groups, with recent findings suggesting that African American women have a higher than previously reported risk of developing MS.
