Story

Thank you for taking the time to visit my JustGiving page. Please note that all currencies are accepted.

Those of you close to me will know that a very dear friend of mine has had a challenging year. Having lived with MS for nearly 30 years she contracted PML and subsequently IRIS virus. Both side effects from a current MS treatment that is essential for a sustained quality of life for many MS sufferers. Fatality rates for PML and IRIS are very high. Those that survive are brain damaged. My dear friend has survived, but today she has lost much of her sight, her movement, her memory and her quality of life. Today she needs constant care. 

Whilst rare, these drugs are becoming more essential for many MS sufferers and those conditions are set to be more common in the future. We need better medication or better still , a cure. Together, we could finally beat Multiple Sclerosis.

Over the last year, raising money for MSS, many people have shared similar stories with me and I want to do everything I can to help. Please help me with a donation, large or small, all for a good cause.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity.
