My dad was diagnosed with progressive multiple sclerosis (MS) when I was six.
At the time, I had no idea how life-changing it would be for our family. Fortunately, my little brother and I had our mum. She took us to rugby and held down two jobs to support us.
More than 100,000 people live with MS in the UK. It’s often painful and exhausting, and can cause problems with how you walk, move, see, think and feel. And it can be just as tough for friends and family, who have to watch their loved ones battle often debilitating symptoms.
But no matter your connection to MS, the MS Society is here for you through the highs, lows and everything in between.
That’s why I’m supporting Cake Break – a delicious way to fundraise this March. It’s the perfect opportunity to come together with friends and family and indulge in some tasty treats while supporting everyone affected by MS.
I’d love for your readers to join me in baking for the MS Society – they can find out more at www.cakebreak.org.uk or join the conversation using #CakeBreak.
Together, we are strong enough to stop MS.
