The MS Society, 60 Year Anniversary. ~ Living La Vida Lola

The MS Society, 60 Year Anniversary.

If you have been reading my posts you will know that I am hoping to raise money Multiple Sclerosis. MS is a disease my father has had since he was 39, that’s 34 years ago, it’s a given that I would raise money for MS.

I am working with the MS Society to raise funds and awareness in what is their 60th Anniversary year. To follow is a little more about the disease.

MS takes many forms in the way it attacks the body and can progress at different rates. I will talk more about this later as it something I have lived with all my life with my father being diagnosed when I was 6 years old. For now here is a brief overview.

About Multiple Sclerosis (source MS Society)

  • Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a condition of the central nervous system
  • In MS, the coating around nerve fibres (called myelin) is damaged, causing a range of symptoms
  • Around 100,000 people in the UK have MS. It’s normally diagnosed in people between the ages of 20 and 40, and affects almost twice as many women as men
  • Once diagnosed, MS stays with you for life, but treatments and specialists can help you to manage the symptoms
  • We don’t know the cause and we haven’t yet found a cure, but research is progressing fast
