Story

Thank you for opening my page. I am 34 years old and can only travel short distances with a walking stick due to my worsening condition. MS is caused by the immune system attacking the nervous system and causes many dibilitating symptoms. I am desperately raising money for this treatment to halt and repair the damage so I can lead a normal life and start to plan for my future.....please take a moment to hear my story.

Throughout 2013 I had many visits to my Doctors to discuss my worsening symptoms that were causing concern. On every occasion I visited the GP I was dismissed and misdiagnosed. In February 2014 I collapsed and was immediately rushed to hospital, as I could not see or walk. My girlfriend and I who had only been together weeks had our dreams shattered, we knew things were going to get tough but this has been gruelling. I have had to relearn to walk and I have never fully regained my vision.

Four years since my diagnosis and it is like living a nightmare. My symptoms have grown significantly worse, medication available on the NHS, changes to my diet, holistic treatments and supplements have made little difference. My symptoms have meant that I have been forced to reduce my working hours and I am increasingly house-bound.

There is currently no cure for this on the NHS. There are successful trials being undertaken by Cambridge University but with the speed and the progression of my illness I don’t have the time to wait before my condition worsens. This is why I am asking for your help, even the smallest of donations will go a very long way. I am totally grateful to my family and friends who are all undertaking fund raising events on my behalf. The fight is hard but I will not be defeated. I will be eternally thankful for any time, effort and money put towards this cause. This treatment could make such an improvement to my life.

Any money raised over my target will be donated to similar causes.

Thanks again for reading.
