This week is Multiple Sclerosis awareness week (23 -29 April) and there are lots of different ways you can get involved to help support people living with MS.
Neil Findlay MSP said:
“MS Society Scotland are asking people to choose a guilty pleasure, kiss it goodbye for one month, and use the money they raise to help them fund cutting-edge MS research.
“There are over 11,000 people suffering from MS in Scotland, one of the highest rates in the world per head of population.”
“We can make a difference by getting behind this innovative campaign and I offer it my full support.”
Morna Simpkins, Director for MS Society Scotland said:
“On this MS Week we would like to highlight the importance of MS research. For more than 11,000 people in Scotland, living with MS is a daily reality. This is why the MS Society is driving cutting-edge research into more – and better treatments to ultimately stop MS.
“By joining a global group of fundraisers and taking part in Kiss Goodbye to MS, your small sacrifice could help us find new treatments for people living with MS and their loved ones.”
MS is an unpredictable condition that is different for everyone. It affects how a person thinks, feels and moves.
