When Cheryl was diagnosed with MS, she thought it might mean she would have to give up all the things she loved. She misses some activities, but thanks to supporters like you, she still has her independence.

“I’m Cheryl, I’m 48 and a mother of two teenage daughters. I was first diagnosed with MS when I was 42.

I’ve spent the last 10 years working in a hospital, cooking, and delivering food for some of the most vulnerable people in the country. Working with MS is difficult, and I often end shifts with pain across the right side of my body.

MS is not going to stop me from doing the things I love. I’m frightened for the day I’ll no longer be able to manage, but what gives me hope is all the good work and research MS Plus is doing.

With your continued support, I believe we can find a cure for MS.” – Cheryl
