I’m doing the London 10K Walk for the MS Society on 28th September. The money raised will go towards MS Research – it’s vital that we raise money so that one day there may be a cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
I haven’t posted to this blog in a long time! I’m hoping to have time to write some new music related posts in the next few weeks. However, for now I just have a personal request…
My mother was diagnosed with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis in 1998. However, it was suspected that she might have had it for 15 years at that point. Only 4 years later, she had a very severe downturn and ended up in hospital, and subsequently a nursing home, where she still is now. I was in school when she was diagnosed, and 17 when she went into hospital / care. Nowadays she can not really communicate or move at all. She can not eat or drink as it is dangerous for her to swallow (she is peg fed).
This is why I want to raise money for MS Research.
One of the biggest problems is our lack of understanding and knowledge about MS. We don’t know 100% what causes it. We can treat the symptoms a little, but we can not prevent, or reverse the progression of the disease.
PLEASE DONATE to the MS Research fund so others in the future may benefit from new medications and hopefully one day, a cure for MS.
