Louise Thomson - MS battle

I am setting up this page for my sister who, after many years of feeling not quite herself, being judged by people because of her slurred speech and embarrassed because of her anxieties... Found herself, after endless tests and many misdiagnoses, diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis) in February of this year. 

Everything suddenly made sense to her, all the symptoms she had been experiencing she knew why - she wasn’t going mad. Although I say it made sense to her but the actual real life shattering realisation of her diagnosis of MS is something she will have to live with for the rest of her life.

MS is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord.  MS is a not something you can take a pill for and you  feel better.  MS is a life changing illness that will only progress and lead to permanent damage.  There is no cure for MS.  As a family they are faced with a diagnosis that will change all their lives forever.

My sister is only 36 year of age, mother to four incredibly brave children, Thomas, George, Harry and Rosie, and life partner to Sid.  At 36 years old my sister is already experiencing significant progressive symptoms and finds herself already having to adapt to her new way of life.  She now uses a mobility scooter so that she is able to take her children to school. 

As a family they need to adapt their family home not only to accommodate this disease but for a greater quality of life which would enable them to live and play together and be safe.  Already struggling to walk she is in dire need to adapt her family home, so that she can live a ‘normal’ life. 

There is an essential list of things that is needed to be adapted now such as an accessible bedroom and bathroom downstairs to help her with her daily life. Railings and ramps need to be put in place so she can get around without furniture hopping but the more MS takes over her life she will need additional things to help her live her life. 

Of course all the adaptions come at a cost and so, I am asking you from the bottom of my heart if you could donate to this page so that she is able to use the money to adapt her family home, so that she can continue to live in her forever house, her family house and be able to live as normal and comfortable as she can.

Thank you!
