" has been an essential support in my role as an MS nurse. To be able to signpost people at diagnosis and those re-entering healthcare at points on their journey with this disease, has been crucial. I've received such good feedback over the years of the Buddy Network and how it has made a difference to a person's life by providing a positive link with someone who has MS."

What our community says

This group is truly amazing! You don’t feel alone in all of this and it is a lot to take in.
For all the medical professionals have read up about it, they will never really get it. That's not a criticism, just an observation. People here really do get it! makes me feel comfortable and confident enough to actually talk about MS and allows me to connect and read about people and their relationship with MS. Thank you for giving us a voice!
So thankful for the chance to talk with others about it and learn from other people how to cope with it.
