My story

[p]This year I shall be running 3 Marathons in April – Manchester, Boston USA and lastly London. All this to raise some desperately needed funds for the Multiple Sclerosis Trust.[/p][p]Over the years I've watched family, friends and work colleagues coping with the reality of MS and I know how devastating it can be. My mother suffered from the disease for many years and I saw at first hand the pain and frustration it caused her. More recently my wife's sister died at the age of 50; she was fortunate to spend her last two years in the care of dedicated people who helped to give her a real quality of life, but living with MS had been a constant battle for more than two decades.[/p][p]MS is a debilitating and progressive disease for which there is currently no known cure. It impacts not just on the sufferers but also on the lives of their families and friends who do their best to cope and provide emotional and practical support as MS progresses.[/p][p]No two people experience the condition in the same way: variability and unpredictability are key characteristics of MS. The MS Trust directs it resources towards providing a first class, evidence-based information service to answer individual questions from MS sufferers, their friends and families, as well as those who provide professional support - nurses, therapists, doctors and many others.[/p][p]The MS Trust says "At the MS Trust we believe that no one should have to take on MS Alone." The NHS has some 300 MS Nursing posts (sadly only 200 are actually filled) and it is the MS trust that provides all the training for these NHS’ specialist MS Nurses.[/p][p]So I really would appreciate it if you can make a contribution, it will make a genuine difference so please be generous. You can donate online via this web site or to me personally. In both cases your contributions will be boosted by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme (provided you are a UK taxpayer).[/p][p]Thank you !![/p][p][i]Check my training blog .... click [/i][url=http://johnmslm2013.wordpress.com/][i]here[/i][/url][/p]
