MS Research Treatment and Education Newsletter 5 print

MS Research Treatment and Education is a charity dedicated to furthering our understanding of MS and developing better treatments through research and education, with your help we aim to:
Listen to people with MS and those who share their lives.
Learn more about the problems they face everyday.
Act to address and alleviate those problems.
These principles have driven our approach to MS for many years and encouraged us to try and get to the heart of key problems experienced by those who have MS. Through
research into key areas of difficulty, and the “translation” of the successful outcome of research into therapies available to the MS community through education and training we aim to show how funds so generously donated by you have resulted in new therapies and treatments. While we can allow ourselves a little pat on the back for progress so far we can never forget that much more needs to be done.

Nadia is going up Kilimanjaro

Nadia and Holly

Nadia and Holly are going up Kilimanjaro

Nadia and Holly are going up Kilimanjaro! You could think that is easy…

Holly was diagnosed two years ago with Multiple Sclerosis (MS). It starts with attacks that affects the body functions. It comes and goes, it is remitting and relapsing. At the time one is young in a career that makes one hopeful MS has to return or remit. What if you are an air hostess in a strange place far from home?

What if the symptoms you have make you look as if you are under the influence of alcohol? Slurred speech or lack of balance…It is very tough at 25!

I left hospital not knowing much about my condition, or if indeed I would ever walk properly again, said Holly.

Nadia decided that her inspirational friend Holly was not going through with this on her own. They both want to find better treatments for the disease.On January 24th 2014 they will together start climbing Mount Kilimanjaro on the Machame Route.
Give Nadia some support, donate using the Justgiving link: http://www.justgiving.com/NadiaKilimanjaro2014

Think of using Gift Aid as it will make your donation go further. It is a massive challenge for both, mentally and physically. Any donation will make a huge difference, and please don’t underestimate how much your support means to them.
