MS is one of those diseases that has many different forms and can take various paths through a person’s lifetime making each person’s journey individual. Thankfully over the past number of years scientific research has provided a number of treatment options using Disease Modifying Therapies which are tailored to the individual and can assist in altering the course of the disease.
It is in supporting Research Programs through MS Ireland that we gain invaluable information about this disease and possible treatments. MS Ireland through their 32 voluntary Branches throughout Ireland provides a number of valuable supports and service to people and their families living with the challenges of MS.
