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 raise the life expectations of people living with MS.

In terms of quality of life, many people may have lowered their expectations of life with MS.

So this year the MS community are daring to think about things differently, to reveal the truth about their life and to speak up in their appointments.

It’s time people had a new mantra for their life with MS – Demand More. Get More.

Because living with MS should never mean settling for less.

Discover a truth about your life with MS, and dare to do something differently.
