*Join the Fightback against MS*
It’s MS Week (30 April-6 May).
MS is a condition close to us; Felix and Hugo’s mum lived with MS for many
sadly passing away ten years ago. It is destructive and attacks at random.
People are usually diagnosed with the
neurological condition in their 20s or 30s, and it affects around twice as
many women as men.
This is why we’ve teamed up with the MS Society which supports thousands of
people to fight back against the debilitating condition every day. On
tour, where possible,
we’ve been raising awareness of MS, and money for the MS Society. During
the last UK tour
in Belfast we were very happy to have people affected with MS and others
the MS Society to the gig to collect throughout the shows. Andy (22) from
Bangor, who helps
care for his mum who has MS, and Shauna (25) from London Derry and Linette
(30) from Omagh,
who both live with the condition themselves. It was a pleasure to be
involved and meet
them all that afternoon and we intend to continue to support the MS Society
throughout the future.
With support, most people affected by MS can fight back and live full,
active lives, thanks to the likes
of the MS Society. We know any help will be very gratefully recieved.
