for MS research in Illinois."

Treatment for multiple sclerosis is expensive and often means a significant portion of a family's income is consumed by care giving, hospital and physician costs, medication, long-term care, assistive devices and equipment. The average cost for someone living with MS is $69,118 per year.

The Illinois General Assembly will appropriate proceeds from "It's Double Time!" tickets to the Department of Public Health and the National MS Society, which will award grants to organizations conducting MS research in Illinois. All grants funded by the ticket's revenue will be reviewed and approved by the National MS Society's Research Programs Advisory Committee, a panel that includes some 75 leading scientists, physicians and other professionals from virtually every field related to MS.

"It's Double Time!" is available at Illinois Lottery retail locations. Each ticket will cost $2 and have a top prize of $20,000. It is estimated that the sale of this ticket will generate more than $1.3 million in net revenue each year.
