Assistive Technology

In my early years of living with MS, my major symptoms were fatigue and mobility. As time has progressed, my experience of the impact on my life has varied, from a ten-year period of no symptoms to now, when every day is shaped in some way to accommodate my MS. In the early years, my one assistive device was my trusty folding stick. It was always close, and I made sure it was in the car for those days when my leg just refused to co-operate

Virtual Balloon Race, here we go again..

World MS Day 2020 was certainly a little different to World MS Days in the past, as we had to change our plans due to the onset of COVID-19 and we quickly moved all our events, activities and webinars online as we embraced this new virtual world we found ourselves in.

Now well into a second year living with COVID-19 our fundraising efforts for 2021 continue to exist in the virtual and online sphere. Yet again we’ve had to postpone and cancel many of our physical, in-person events and fundraisers. 

One event that we are absolutely thrilled to bring back is our Virtual Balloon Race!
