Local MSP, Gordon Macdonald has joined MS Society Scotland in their campaign to “Kiss Goodbye to MS”. The campaign is encouraging people to give up their guilty pleasure this May to raise money for research into MS – with the MS Society driving research into more, and better, treatments.
With MS affecting more than 11,000 people in Scotland, causing problems with how we walk, move, see, think and feel, MS Society Scotland recently held an event in The Scottish Parliament to raise awareness of the important role research plays in the lives of people affected by MS.
MSP for Edinburgh Pentlands has pledged his support for MS Society Scotland’s “Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign”.
Commenting SNP MSP for Edinburgh Pentlands, Gordon Macdonald, said:
Everyone has their own guilty pleasure and I encourage everyone, that can, to free themselves of that guilt for a few weeks and get involved in the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign.
MS is an unpredictable condition that is different for everyone and the more research undertaken, the better our care and support will be.
Kiss Goodbye to MS is about people coming together globally and supporting MS International Federation to accelerate the research into multiple sclerosis across the world.
Morna Simpkins, Director for MS Society Scotland said:
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.
For more than 11,000 people in Scotland, living with MS is a daily reality. This is why the MS Society is driving cutting-edge research into more – and better treatments to ultimately stop MS.
