Mark joined with his constituent, June Roy, who was diagnosed with MS in 2003, to show support for the campaign which focuses on the groundbreaking research taking place to help find ways to ‘kiss goodbye’ to MS.
“I am fully supportive of this campaign and the wider work of the MS Society.
“I have met with a number of constituents affected by MS over my time as an elected representative and have always pledged to them to do my bit to champion anything that could help them.
“The ‘Kiss Goodbye to MS’ campaign is exciting because it shows that there is a huge amount of groundbreaking work and research taking place which could result in some major developments in the near future.”
Morna Simpkins, Director for MS Society Scotland said:
“On this MS Week we would like to highlight the importance of MS research. For more than 11,000 people in Scotland, living with MS is a daily reality. This is why the MS Society is driving cutting-edge research into more – and better treatments to ultimately stop MS.
“By joining a global group of fundraisers and taking part in Kiss Goodbye to MS, your small sacrifice could help us find new treatments for people living with MS and their loved ones.”
