MS Awareness Week: #MSMakesMe
Help us spread awareness of the reality of life with MS
In this year’s MS Awareness Week UK, running from Monday 24th – Sunday 30th April, we will be talking about how MS makes you feel. For the first time ever, we’ve partnered with six UK MS charities to deliver one unified message and raise awareness about the diversity of life with multiple sclerosis.
Whether you’re living with MS or you’re a carer, healthcare professional, a friend or family member of someone with MS, we know how unpredictable and diverse life with MS can be, and the considerable emotional impact it can have. Wherever you live, we invite you to take part in sharing the reality of life with MS.
How do I get involved?
From Monday 24th April, wherever you are in the world, join the conversation on social media and share how MS makes you feel. Use the hashtag #MSMakesMe to help others know they are not alone in how they feel on their MS journey.
We asked Sue, member of the England South West Circle, to share how MS makes her feel:
“#MSMakesMe adventurous. I don’t let it define me, I’m still me. I just have to adapt my home and lifestyle to enable me to carry on living well with MS. I almost relish in the challenges my MS gives me, to find new ways to continue doing what I want to do!”
Does MS make you feel brave, tired, positive, worried for the future, or hopeful? Or something entirely different? Share your #MSMakesMe story with us on social media and don't forget to tag us.
To provide extra support for people with MS, every day during MS Awareness Week there will be free, special online events, available for everyone across the globe. We are excited to be holding three live events, sign up below to join them live, or to receive the recordings if the time doesn't work for you.
