Jackson Carlaw MSP has lent his support to the Multiple Sclerosis Society Scotland’s MS Awareness Week.
The Eastwood MSP met MS Society Scotland in The Scottish Parliament and gave his support to the Society’s research into more – and better – treatments for those suffering with MS.
Kiss Goodbye to MS encourages people to give up their guilty pleasure this May to raise money for research into MS.
More than 11,000 people living in Scotland suffer from MS. MS is a chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system, ie brain, spinal cord and optic nerves.
Jackson said: “MS is a horrendous degenerative disease which fundamentally alters the lives of those diagnosed with it.
“Only with well funded research can we better understand MS and hopefully generate better and more effective ongoing treatments.
“A cure may not be on the horizon as of yet but hopefully with some small sacrifices this May Scots can help fund research which may end up generating a cure.”
