Jenny Gilruth MSP Backs MS Awareness Week

 

MSP for Mid Fife and Glenrothes, Jenny Gilruth, has pledged her support for MS Society Scotland’s ‘Kiss Goodbye to MS’ campaign and has called on constituents to follow suit.

 

On Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Week (23-29 April) MS Society Scotland were in the Scottish Parliament to raise awareness of the important role research plays in the lives of people affected by MS.

 

MS affects more than 11,000 people in Scotland and can cause problems with how we walk, move, see, think and feel. But the MS Society is driving research into more – and better – treatments. Kiss Goodbye to MS encourages people to give up their guilty pleasure this May to raise money for research.

Commenting the MSP said:

 

“For more than 11,000 people in Scotland, living with MS is a daily reality. MS is an unpredictable condition that is different for everyone. It affects how a person thinks, feels and moves.

 

“I am delighted to support this MS campaign, which affects many of my constituents.  The MS Society Scotland do a fantastic job in terms of support and cutting-edge research and I would encourage everyone to sign up for Kiss Goodbye to MS”

 

Morna Simpkins, Director for MS Society Scotland said:

 

“On this MS Week we would like to highlight the importance of MS research. For more than 11,000 people in Scotland, living with MS is a daily reality. This is why the MS Society is driving research into more – and better treatments to ultimately stop MS.

 

“By joining a global group of fundraisers and taking part in Kiss Goodbye to MS, your small sacrifice could help us find new treatments for people living with MS and their loved ones.”
