WHAT IS MS? 

Multiple sclerosis [MS] – meaning ‘many scars’ – is a condition of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), which is incurable and often disabling. The average age of diagnosis is just 30, just when people are trying to start careers and families.

While there are some treatments for one form of MS, around half the people with the disease currently have no treatments and there is no cure. This has to change! MS is the result of damage to myelin –a protective coating surrounding nerve fibres of the central nervous system (a bit like the rubber coating around wires). When myelin is damaged the scars interfere with messages between the brain and other parts of the body.

There are over  9,000 people living with MS in Ireland and around two thirds are female. This is why Kiss Goodbye to MS is building a community of women (and men) in Ireland and around the world to raise money to change the world for everyone living with MS.
