MS patient led study on Qigong for MS

Hi. My name is Cara & I have had MS for 15 years. I started a company, The SwitchVR, 3 years ago. Our purpose is to develop holistic therapeutics (i.e. meditation, mindfulness, Qigong) using technology so that we can offer complementary practices for MS patients, like myself. Our first product is an online video library of Qigong movements and meditations. Because we believe in science, data and evidence, we are about to conduct two studies, a pilot and clinical trial, to test the efficacy of these practices on MS symptoms. But, studies are expensive and in order to execute them, we need your help. We have started a crowdfunding campaign with ifundwomen (link below). https://ifundwomen.com/projects/therachi-qigong-ms-empowering-patients This is an opportunity to contribute to a study led by an MS patient and with the health and well being of MS patients in the forefronts of our minds. If everyone who views this, contributes whatever small amount that you can (even $5 helps), we will get closer to our goal. Thank you so much for reading this & I am more than happy to answer any questions.
