People living with advanced MS can feel invisible to the healthcare system, with little interaction with health professionals and limited access to disease modifying drugs. With more than 40,000 people living with advanced MS in the UK, this lack of access to healthcare cannot continue. This is where a donation from you can help, by funding more desperately needed healthcare professionals across the UK. Your donation could support these professionals to offer specialist knowledge, bridge the gap between health and social services, and provide continuous, stable access to health services.
Help advance MS care
A donation from you could fund more Advanced MS Champions across the UK and drastically improve the quality of life for some of the 40,000 people living with advanced MS.

Sometimes you have questions or needs (even after 8 years) and you're not sure if it's the GP, the neuro, the nurse or who it is that deals with it. That's where an Advanced MS Champion would be so beneficial. Having access to a specialist just for your condition would make this journey a whole lot easier.
