Linda Bloom, founder of the charity Overcoming MS, is standing down as Chair of the Board of Trustees, after a tenure of almost ten years. I would like to express our huge gratitude and thanks to Linda on behalf of all the OMS community. Thousands of people around the world have benefitted from her unwavering commitment, generosity and unwavering belief that Overcoming MS is possible.
I am delighted to say that Linda will continue stewarding Overcoming MS’s journey to inform, support and empower people affected by MS. Her personal experience as an OMSer, skills and passion will remain invaluable in helping to raise the charity’s profile and extend its reach in her new capacity as Charity President.
“I am so proud of what we have achieved together so far. Empowering those with MS to make informed lifestyle choices in order to lead a full and healthy life has always been at the heart of what we do. It has been a privilege to witness the difference that the OMS programme has made to so many. With our strong team of staff and volunteers, led by CEO Grazina Berry, I look forward to the next exciting chapter in Overcoming MS’s evolution.”
