Nadia Takes A Trip Down Memory Lane

Many years ago, I remember trying to articulate how an MS diagnosis affects your relationships. I told my Mam that it’s like being at the epicentre of an earthquake.

The earthquake creates a canyon too wide for some friendships to continue any further. This natural disaster somehow pushes you closer to people who might surprise you. Rescue can come from new sources and people that you never even thought you’d encounter on this journey called life.

Roche has recently announced that the European Commission has granted marketing authorisation for Ocrevus (ocrelizumab) subcutaneous (under the skin) injection (Ocrevus SC).
