    Story

    I'm creating this page for my brave and caring sister called Faye, she’s 39 and suffers with Multiple Sclerosis (MS

    She's had MS since a child but the last 5 years has really taken hold of her body, she feels numbness in her legs which make her trip and fall over and hurt herself, she feels dizzy and constantly feels tired so sleeps in the afternoon. She struggles to walk now and my parents have bought her a wheelchair and a electric buggy. This is very hard on my parents aswell, who wants to see their child suffer so much.

    If your still reading this thankyou, I've never done anything like this before. I have never asked strangers for money but figured that I can only try, if I can just reach 60000 people (just he says) and they all donate just one pound, thats all it takes, seems so simple really:)

    I can tell you the money raised will send my sister to Mexico so my she can have Stem Cell therapy. They met recently with another MS sufferer who is alot older than my sister and he was so positive over the treatment it really has made a massive difference to him and the quality of life he has now. Stem cell therapy stops the disease at the stage you are currently at. The treatment is a month long and not without risks but its very expensive - GBP 60,000, The same treatment in the UK is over 100K.
    Its very similar to what cancer suffers have to go through, she’s going to be ill and lose her hair, she will also need 6 months treatment/medication in the UK to build up her immune system again.

    I'm asking for help because there is no way we can do this as we are, so we can't just sit back and wait for something to happen. Doctors in the UK have say there is no funds for extra help. We have always paid into the system and now the system can't help us.

    She currently has infusions in the UK and before her therapy she will need to be clear of these for 3 months so we are hoping that she can get a cancellation appointment and start in January 2017.

      We met Faye's parents during our recent holiday and were touched to learn of Faye's condition and the efforts to improve her quality of life. We sincerely hope that treatment in Mexico is a success.
