Help for MS patients
A patient led forum Shift.ms is ideally placed to offer helpful advice to MS patients. I have found it to be invaluable, with support from other members readily available thanks to the forum. Wider mentions of the work we do are genuinely appreciated and will help more people with MS find our community and benefit from it.
