Kiss goodbye to Multiple Sclerosis

30th May is World Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Day and is the culmination of a month long  effort by MS Australia to raise awareness about MS.  MS is the most common neurological disorder of young adults in Australia and while it’s symptoms vary from person to person they are often highly debilitating, including loss of sensation, balance and coordination and chronic pain.  The disease is on the rise and is three times more common in women than in men.

On MS day this year I was asked by the Lord Mayor to represent the City at the “Kiss goodbye to MS” campaign launch in Martin Place.  As part of the campaign people are being asked to wear red lipstick or to otherwise make themselves stand out in red to start a conversation about MS and encourage others to donate to help find a cure where currently none exists.  For more information or to make a donation go to http://www.kissgoodbyetoms.org/.
