We create innovative resources as catalysts to inspire and motivate MSers, such as our series of short films
‘Gallop’ explores the life-changing event of diagnosis of MS through a compelling love story rather than solely focusing on the disease. It has been created to capture some of the emotions – fear, uncertainty and frustration – of diagnosis.
‘Gallop’ was directed by BAFTA nominated film director Michael Pearce and shortlisted for Best Short Film at Rushes Soho Shorts Festival.
‘Belong’ features Dave and Karen, the characters from ‘Gallop’, in conversation with other MSers for the first time. They discuss symptoms, relationships and how MS can also have a positive effect on people’s lives and how belonging to a community may be more help than you’d think.
‘Circle of Truth’ explores some of the challenges that MSers face when deciding whether or not to disclose their diagnosis to their colleagues.
Working it Out
In ‘Working it Out’, Gen talks to other MSers about their experiences of MS in the workplace and explores what practical adjustments she can ask her employer to make plus things she could do to make things easier.
