Linda joined Multiple Sclerosis Scotland in the Scottish Parliament as part of Multiple Sclerosis Awareness Week, taking place between 23-29 April. MS Society Scotland raised awareness of the important role research plays in the lives of people affected by MS.
Multiple Sclerosis affects more than 11,000 people in Scotland and can cause problems with how we walk, move, see, think and feel. The MS Society however are driving research into more – and better – treatments. Kiss Goodbye to MS encourages people to give up their guilty pleasure this May to raise money for research.
Linda pledged support for MS Society Scotland’s Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign, saying:
“MS Society Scotland do fantastic work in supporting those who live with Multiple Sclerosis on a daily basis, as well as their research into treatments for those affected. It was a real pleasure to highlight and support their work in the parliament, and I support all their endeavours to one day stop MS.
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.”
