The MCS Advocacy Fund was established to help those people
disabled from Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS) who, because of
their illness and consequent unemployment, need physical and
financial help for their very survival. Until now, no basic social
services have been available to MCS victims because of the severe
lifestyle restrictions specific to this illness. The MCS Advocacy Fund
will provide:
