Who
Are We?

The World vs.MS is all about making a real difference to the lives of those living with multiple sclerosis (MS) and the people who support them. We’re working to encourage them to always Demand More from their life with the condition through awareness, education and understanding.

Our mission is to help more people living with MS to live the best life they possibly can.

Whether it was the boy who laughed when you fell, or the lady in the restaurant who kept staring at you, we’d love to hear who or what made you Demand More from life with MS. And don’t forget, all the stories we recieve will be submitted for the chance to be brought to life in their very own film

This year, we’re asking people to Demand More from life with MS. By sharing moments of when others have changed their life with MS for the better, we hope to inspire more to stop and think about all the compromises they’ve had to make since their diagnosis, to break out of the routine and Demand More.

Shortlisting of the final stories will take place towards the end of this year, so be sure to submit yours in plenty of time if you want to be in with a chance. Creation of the films will begin in January 2018.
