Diagnosed with MS 20 years

At diagnosis those years ago I knew my life had come to end. The diagnosis washed away all my dreams for a happy ending.

It did completed change my life. Continued to work until 10 years ago.

I was a mortgage adviser and the charity coordinator for the building society. Then retired at the grand old age of 40.

Another of big adjustment both financially and emotionally. I’m an MS survivor and MS warrior and I have a great life with my friends and support.

I was 50 years old last year with a simple birthday. It may sound crazy but I am going to get a cure for MS and raise awareness and care for us MSers. But i have had an idea and been speaking with Professor

Working on a stem cell research and ideas that can raise awareness while having fun. A lot of feedback encouraging me on my new adventure.
