My Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis in 2013 (aged 22) came as a shock and I am now determined to raise as much awareness as I can for MS and other invisible illnesses. As well as sharing thoughts, ideas, help and tips.
I also wish to raise funds for the support that the MS Society provide. They need fundraising to help run their support lines and fund essential research into the disease.
I speak from personal experience when I say that after diagnosis, their helplines and literature were exactly what I needed to help me cope and I hope that their scientific research may lessen the effects on the disease as I grow older.
I have already raised over £500 at work for this cause and I hope to continue this.
