Why fundraise for Shift.ms?
MS is typically diagnosed when people are in their 20s and 30s, a time of major life decisions about relationships, family and career. The uncertainty that comes with a diagnosis of MS is isolating and overwhelming.
We fundraise to provide services to ensure no MSer feels alone.
Don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what some of our members think of the site:
“Shift.ms offers so much information which helped when talking to health professionals, and gave me a better understanding. I use the site when I need info or when I just need cheering up.”
“I live in Australia I appreciate that I can interact with other MS sufferers and find out how I can improve my condition.”
“When I joined shift I was really depressed and isolated and talking to other people who were going through the same things as me helped me a lot. I would recommend the site to anyone who has MS.”
