Sumaira Foundation for NMO started this petition to U.S. Senate and

For many years, patients with NMOSD (Neuromyelitis Optica Spectrum Disorder) and friends have advocated state by state to have March declared as NMOSD Awareness Month.  We have to re-apply every year, and we do not get proclamations from every state.  

NMOSD is a rare autoimmune disease of the central nervous system that primarily attacks the optic nerve, potentially causing blindness; the spinal cord, sometimes causing paralysis; and the brainstem, causing myriad neurological problems and even death. 

We request that the Senate and/or House proclaim March as NMOSD Awareness Month on a national and permanent basis, so that patients and friends can use to full advantage the annual opportunity to raise awareness, educate the public as well as physicians, and help raise money for research into this destructive and mostly unknown disease.
