Yes, and it’s not only MS sufferers who will be helped. Many of the very distressing conditions which have a neurological/immunoactivity/stem cell basis will also benefit from the results which will come out of that work. Diseases such as MND, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s.

That’s cool of her. My only nice uncle has MS. Every time I see him it has gotten worse, it’s heart breaking.

Scotland has much higher rates of MS compared to England which is partly why there is a bit of a focus on it up here. Just thought people might be interested to know that.

Nice to see her name pop up for something we can all appreciate and respect. Still the clock is ticking until Ron is revealed to be non-binary.

I mean for all the shit she’s been getting recently for her creative work (either warranted or not), she does seem like a person who puts her money where her mouth is and donates/gives to good causes.
