An MS diagnosis can stop dreams in their tracks.
Please help those living with MS step towards a brighter future.
Everyone's MS journey is different
Multiple Sclerosis means many scars. The immune system is supposed to fight off infections. But when you have MS, it scars the structures and cells within the central nervous system, causing symptoms like debilitating fatigue, coordination problems, double vision, memory loss, continence issues, slurred speech and extreme pain.
It’s a life-long and life-changing disease – and the average age for a diagnosis is just 30. There is currently no cure – though with the right treatment, care and support we can help those living with MS step into a brighter future.
