9 year old Simon has been diagnosed with MS (Multiple Sclerosis). This disease is most commonly known in adults but more and more children today are being diagnosed with the disease that threatens their muscles.
With MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body. Eventually, the disease can cause the nerves themselves to deteriorate or become permanently damaged. There’s no cure for the disease. However, treatments can help speed recovery from attacks, modify the course of the disease and manage symptoms.
Simon’s parents first noticed there was an issue when he started complaining of headaches, fevers and later began having seizures. After the doctors diagnosed Simon, he has been battling between medication that doesn’t give him bad side effects. The non-curable disease has affected his school work, his social life and his day to day living.
The family have now racked up huge medical bills in providing Simon with psychological and educational support along with treating the disease and specialist neurology appointments.
What was once known as a strictly adult diseases can now affect our youngsters. Simon is suffering and so is his family. Let’s try and raise as much money as possible to give them some financial relief and the ability to concentrate on giving Simon the best possible care he needs.
