Why Support MS Research?
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a condition that doesn’t give those with the disease a day off. MS affects young adults and sometimes children. It is the most common cause of disability in young people and once diagnosed will affect the rest of a person’s life. This means an adult life-time of battling against symptoms like muscle weakness often with loss of mobility, fatigue, tremor, bladder and bowel problems, sensory problems, difficulty walking and visual impairment. MS affects one person in 100,000.
To understand the disease and search for solutions research needs to be equally relentless. With effective research we can solve problems, deliver better treatments or contribute to finding the information we need for a cure.
MS Research Treatment & Education is funded entirely by donations and every penny raised goes toward “looking forward to seeing the back of MS”
