My story

Thanks for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page for an Opera Gala in aid of MS Support on 25th April (tickets available by emailing operagalaforMS@gmail.com)

This is my story (Jenny Wilson-Best).

I have MS and heard about REVIVE MS Support soon after being diagnosed. The doctors tell you that you have MS, there’s no cure and the drugs won’t help much. You’re left wondering how this is going to change your life. The life of your partner. Your work. Your hobbies. Your outlook. From being totally able bodied and able to climb mountains to somebody that finds it impossible to get to the local shop. Learning to to deal with spasms, pain and chronic fatigue.

And so I came to REVIVE. I was immediately offered help and support both physically and emotionally with therapy, counseling and kindness and always with a warm smile. I have listened but I have also been heard. They helped me with every aspect of this new life that my husband and I have had to come to terms with. They help so many people during the many stages of MS and always with positive care and understanding.

I have been an opera singer for 30 years and would like this concert to be a way of saying thank you to REVIVE MS Support. It is with their aid that, though in a wheelchair, I am able to find a path upon which I can now walk.

It would be wonderful to see you at our Opera Gala Concert in London on 25th April at The White House, London W5 (tickets are available by emailing operagalaforMS@gmail.com) but if you’re not able to come then please donate what you can to help those with MS.

My thanks go to Rose Bellingham (my co-organizer of this concert and much loved friend), Robert Carlin, Graeme Danby and Lydia Newlands for giving freely of their talents. Thanks also to Janek Zylinski family who are donating their beautiful home as a venue for our performance www.whitehouselondon.com
