The National Multiple Sclerosis Fund’s National Multiple Sclerosis Trust Week will take place from June 28 to July 3, 2021.
The fund is actively looking for people who want to help raise funds using their mobile phones. You can collect the mobile from the sofa, garden chair or chairs! Will it help fight multiple sclerosis (MS)?
That MS has a huge impact on (young people’s) lives and has many different faces, the MS Fund is currently making clear in the new “Face It Up” campaign. MS breaks nerves.”
The campaign includes five people with MS: Carla, Winston, Carlene, Kevin, and Vera. They vary in age and all are at a different stage in life, but they have one thing in common: All five have MS. On www.nationaalmsfonds.nl/faceit they paranormally show the impact of the disease on their lives and what the various complaints and cycles there are.
Face it. MS breaks nerves
In the Netherlands, 25,000 people suffer the consequences of chronic and exacerbated MS every day. Through this campaign, multiple sclerosis is not only given a literal face, but also a call to confront the seriousness of the disease. A literal connection is made with the nervous system, but also a connection to the emotional side of the disease and what this does to patients.
There is an urgent need for research
There is no solution for MS yet. Researchers do not know how MS develops or how the disease can be treated. So more research is urgently needed. The National Multiple Sclerosis Trust spends the proceeds of MS Week on scientific research into better treatments and a better quality of life for people with MS.
Be a collector!
Assembly with your mobile phone is very easy from work or from home. The proceeds from the National Assembly Week are making a difference for the 25,000 people in the Netherlands who have to live every day with a literally nerve-wracking illness. So research into MS and our fight against MS must continue.
