    5 nights of lodging and all meals (with the exception of dinner on Friday evening) during the program for you and your support partner.
    All program materials, presentations, workshops, assessments, and individual consultations for you and your support partner.
    New in 2019 - CAN DO II: Continuing the Connection. This six-month continuation of the in-person program consists of online meetings, workshops, and consultations to help you follow through with goals set at the program.
    2. Your costs for which you and your support partner are responsible, if accepted:
    $250 refundable registration fee is required to confirm your spot. This fee will be refunded after completion of the program or if you cancel at least four weeks prior.

    Participants are accepted via a lottery drawing in January 2019 pending review and approval by the application committee.

    You will receive an update on the status of your application by January 16, 2019.

    If accepted, you will have three weeks to return the physician consent form to complete your application. If your form is NOT received by the due date, your spot will be forfeited.

    You are also committing to CAN DO II: Continuing the Connection, a virtual program that consists of a combination of online group meetings, workshops, and individual consultations.

    The CAN DO Program is open to people living with MS and their support partners. A support partner can be a spouse, friend, sibling, or child who is over the age of 18 years old. We strongly recommend that a support partner attend this program with the person living with MS, as there is no personal assistance available at the program. There are separate sessions devoted just for the support partners.

    Don't delay in applying! The application will only be open for 24 hours as this popular program fills quickly and has very limited availability.

    Click here on December 5, 2018, (on or after 12pm EST) to fill out the online application.
