Maisie
21 September 2017

Maisie, who was diagnosed with MS in June, aged just 14, hosted a My Garden Party in the summer, and raised thousands of pounds to help us make a difference for people with MS. Here she tells us what it meant to fundraise for the MS Trust and why she's determined to live her life like "any other teenager". 

13 September 2017

When Wayne first started experiencing tingling and weakness in his hand and wrist, he ignored it "like a typical bloke". But then six months later, in May this year, he was diagnosed with relapsing remitting MS. Here he tells us about coming to terms with the diagnosis, starting treatment, and why he's determined to "keep smiling".

10 August 2017

Former Royal Marine Andy Merry works as a Yeoman Warder at the Tower of London. He was diagnosed with MS last year and has since raised over £27,000 to support the work of the MS Trust by climbing the highest mountain in the Alps. We caught up with Andy just after he returned from his challenge in June to ask him about his experience of climbing Mont Blanc for MS.

Kimberley
31 July 2017

When Kimberley was diagnosed with MS in February, she was scared to open up about the condition. But then a few months later, on World MS Day, she decided to ‘come out’ about her MS in a rather public way – and was overwhelmed by the support she received from friends and strangers alike.

Johnny
25 July 2017

First Susan in Neighbours, then Nancy in Hollyoaks and now Johnny in Coronation Street: a series of soap characters have been diagnosed with MS. But is this a good way of raising awareness, or an unhelpful misrepresentation? We asked people on social media for their views.
