WHO WE ARE
Cure MS Foundation of New York was founded by Filomena Lombardi in 2012. Living with MS for over 16 years, Filomena decided the side effects of the available FDA approved treatments posed too great a risk as a young mother of two young daughters. Filomena’s hope and courage helped her seek some of the world’s best medical doctors throughout the world. Through her experiences and education she became aware of how to manage this devastating debilitating diagnosis.
The idea of creating this Foundation began after joining the Development Council at the World Class teaching hospital, Stony Brook Medicine in Stony Brook, Long Island. The team at Stony Brook Medicine developed the treatment, Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) , this treatment is costly and is usually not covered by insurance due to the lack of studies on MS. These treatments are monitored by doctors but have never been included in clinical trials therefore they are not recognized as MS treatments for insurance purposes or have FDA approval for the treatment of MS.
Our plan is to raise funds for this and future studies such as this one, to bring awareness through Centers of Excellence, to make treatments available that patients choose to follow to help manage their MS, the way they choose to and have more options available that are not more frightening than the disease diagnosis itself.
MS is a complex disease and it is not the same disease for everyone as science has proven. We will not stop until this disease is eradicated. We will do our part to help find as many treatment options available to those suffering live a fuller more healthier life.
