Hi,

For those who dont know me I'm 34 years old and happily married with 3 beautiful children.My family mean the world to me.

When i was 23 years old i was diagnosed with MS. I remember the day so well especially my parents faces when we were told i had MS.
I soon recovered and carried on with life as normal. Ive now had MS for 11 years and its been in the last 5 years its really taken a hold and impacted on most aspects of my life. On a daiily basis i struggle with chronic pain in my legs which impacts my balance and walking capabilities, fatigure both mental and physical, bladder control and terrible brain fog which really impacts on my speech and my memory. If we don’t try and stop the ms now I could lose the ability to walk amongst other thing. This would impact on our lives and mostly our children’s lives.

HSCT is an intense chemotherapy treatment for MS. It aims to stop the damage MS causes by wiping out and then regrowing your immune system, using your stem cells.
HSCT aims to 'reset' the immune system to stop it attacking the central nervous system. It uses chemotherapy to remove the harmful immune cells and then rebuild the immune system using a type of stem cell found in your bone marrow.
The haematopoietic stem cells used in the treatment can produce all the different cells in your blood, including immune cells.

I need £45,000 to pay for this treatment which will take place in Moscow, Russia. I'm a very proud man and one of the hardest things for me is too ask for help but this time I have too much to lose and i really need help in stopping ths monster of a disease before the damage is done.

if anyone can help in anyway no matter how small, me and my family would be so grateful and you will change the life of mine and most importantly my families.

Thank you for reading a brief version of my story and thank you for your time.

Ben
