Last week, individuals all over the world celebrated World MS Day on the 29th of May. PeoplePledge today wants to highlight Multiple Sclerosis (MS) as it affects thousands of individuals’ lives.
In Australia only there are over 23 thousand individuals who have Multiple Sclerosis. This accounts for approximately 0.1% of the Australian population. Although this sounds little compared to the whole population, Multiple Sclerosis is a disease that can impact the whole family where partners or loved ones become full time carers for those with Multiple Sclerosis.
Last week, Multiple Sclerosis Australia, a non-profit in Australia that helps supports individuals with Multiple Sclerosis and carers of people with MS launched their annual awareness day and major event called MS Walk. To learn more about what Multiple Sclerosis Australia can do your family, you can reach out to them through their website.
