Story


I am going to keep this brief. Those of your who have been directed to this page know me and my family and therefore know my mum has MS and know how this affects our lives, so I am not going to write a big gushy, emotional story.

I am instead going to use this space to tell you about the very worthwhile cause that I am raising money for. 

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a neurological condition which affects around 100,000 people in the UK.

In MS, the coating around nerve fibres is damaged, causing a range of symptoms.

This damage disrupts messages travelling along nerve fibres – they can slow down, become distorted, or not get through at all.

There can also sometimes be damage to the actual nerve fibres. It is this nerve damage that causes the increase in disability that can occur over time.

There is no cure.

The MS Society funds research, gives grants, campaigns for change, provides information and support, invests in MS specialists and lends a listening ear to those who need it.

Please sponsor me :)
