I have gone to several websites looking for the patron saint of multiple sclerosis for a friend who was just diagnosed.
I am not finding anything concrete! HELP!

Dymphna is sometimes invoked, but I always associate her with emotional distress.
Among other things, St. Dymphna is, indeed, one of the patron saints of people who suffer from afflictions of the nervous system, which would include multiple sclerosis.
You may want to consider enrolling your friend in the League of St. Dymphna which operates out of the National Shrine of St. Dymphna of Massillon, Ohio.
For information on the shrine and the spiritual benefits received by league members, please visit this website. You can also arrange to get prayer cards, novena books, statues and third-class relics of St. Dymphna from this shrine.
