Where is the free book offer valid?

We would love to be able to provide free books across the world but unfortunately as a small non-profit organization, this is not currently possible. We are working to expand this program to other countries.

A free published book can be posted to you in the UK, Ireland, Australia and New Zealand. For more information, visit the free book area of the website.

Overcoming Multiple Sclerosis by Professor George Jelinek is available to buy online in most countries – in Kindle format or softback book. It is available in the following languages: English, German and Bulgarian.

Thanks to generosity of a key supporter, OMS is able to provide free copies of Professor Jelinek’s book to people newly diagnosed with MS in Australia, New Zealand, the UK and Ireland.

Is vaping allowed on the OMS Program?

There is little evidence about the long-term safety of vaping itself, but it does have big health benefits due to its role in smoking cessation. Vaping is a lot safer than cigarette smoking which doubles the risk of developing MS, quadruples the chance of developing progressive MS, and exposes children’s risks of getting MS from secondary smoke. Therefore, vaping can play a very important role for people with MS.
