Empowering People Diagnosed With MS

I was diagnosed with MS around christmas 2016. Which of course was a bit of a chock. My neurologist told me to train - a lot. Which was good news. MS is not what it used to be now that there are new effective treatments.However, the way healthcare staff generally treats you as an MS patient is not in line with how we feel and what new treatments can do. Also it takes way too long to get a proper check-up done - such as an MR.I train, a lot. and I started a foundation or a charity if you like, to raise awareness around MS and its symptoms and to also be available as a resource for people who come in contact with people with MS. “Memento Somnium”Primarily this charity hopes to help others train, since that is probably the most effective way to withhold the flare-ups.On June 16 a group of us will ride a 300k bike race in Sweden with the aim of finishing in 8h30 min or less. I have friends flying in from Thailand and The Netherlands and joining the group of Swedes for this race.We will raise money that will support other MS patients to have an active lifestyle, we are doing this in collaboration with a bikestore/brand and various coaching services. As a patient you will apply for funding and Memento Somnium will sort it out for you.
