Through Crowdfunding you could raise money for treatment that is not available through national health services, or pay for expenses incurred while undergoing treatment for multiple sclerosis
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a condition that can cause debilitating affects to those who suffer from it. It affects the brain and/or the spinal cord, causing a wide range of symptoms including loss of visibility or impaired mobility. It affects each person differently, and it's impact can often be hard to predict. Symptoms may come and go, recurring many years later after initially appearing, or they can get progressively worse.
Those faced by decreasing mobility, or trying to fund experimental treatments such as HSCT may find that their costs are not covered by their health service or insurance provisions. In these situations many have turned to crowdfunding to help raise money to pay for the expense of their treatment, or to cover their living costs and expenses while undergoing treatment. As HSCT in particular can cost many tens of thousands of pounds to fund, and often requires travel abroad crowdfunding can be a particularly effective way to raise the necessary funds.
Here are some successful crowdfunders who have used JustGiving to raise money to cover the cost of treatment for MS.
