Challenging times and the power of community

Linda Bloom, Chair of OMS, shares a message for the community in these uncertain times.

Our current global predicament is unprecedented and there are no doubt challenging times ahead, but as we move into uncharted territory regarding overcoming Covid-19, I wanted to reassure you personally that team OMS is ready and more determined than ever to support our very special OMS community.  

As a charity we know that community is everything – together we can be happier, stronger and more resilient. Our determination to share and reach out to you and every person with MS, particularly at this difficult time, is all the more pressing.
