Briefly, I would like to explain the reason behind my Charity Event, I am 18 years old and MS has, been part of my life since the day after I was born. Firstly affecting My Mums sister Jane Devyea from Bromley who was diagnosed the day after I was born, resulting to when I was 4 she had a relapse that confined her to a wheel chair, memory loss, incontinence, Spasticity, vegetable like for 3 years. Sadly my aunt died in 2001 aged 36. My Mum was diagnosed with MS when I was 6 weeks old and has been battling day by day whilst she was watching her sister deteriorate, Mum has continued to battle on, despite seeing her Sister die of the same disease. I can remember quite a lot from my aunt including photos and I have seen first-hand how MS can suddenly take a grip, and feel that now I am of age, I would like to raise money to help find a cure. Jane was from Bromley and her Mother and youngest sister reside in Bromley and Beckenham.
