We support MSers to acknowledge their MS & get on with life

Story

There are over 100,000 people in the UK with Multiple Sclerosis (MS), and around 100 people are diagnosed every week. In November 2016 I officially became one of them...MS is a chronic, debilitating condition for which there is no cure. Most people are diagnosed in their 20s and 30s, a time of key life decisions about relationships, family and careers.

Being diagnosed with a long term condition is frightening and isolating experience that can cause anxiety and depression. Shift.ms aims to reach people with MS (MSers) as soon as possible after diagnosis so they can receive support to adapt to a life with MS. The shift.ms network has been so important for me and helped me a lot in the last year.

I started running again in May 2017 and ran a 10k in aid of shift.ms last August. So to keep me running I found a new challenge and recruited some family, friends and fellow MSers to run with me.
