Become an advocate of AIMS
Championing, promoting and protecting
Becoming an advocate isn’t as daunting as you may think, it’s about championing, promoting and protecting an organisations interests and goals, as well as having a voice and being heard on issues that surround AIMS.
These could be:
Volunteering at an AIMS fundraising event
Starring in your own fundraising event by raising money and awareness of AIMS like; skydiving, parachuting or having a coffee morning
Writing to your local MP or community newspaper and tell them about AIMS and how they can help
Or just helping with routine daily admin
There are so many ways you can support AIMS and this is what Chris Kerins said when he became one of AIMS first advocates:
“I was diagnosed with primary progressive multiple sclerosis in 2008, with the knowledge there was no cure for this degenerative condition, which was gradually taking my life with no hope of change. I was then given a lifeline, in that I received the treatment at the Liverpool Royal University Hospital in 2017. With the progression of my MS being halted I have now been given a future with my family, which I thought I would never have.
Although I was very fortunate to receive this incredible treatment so close to home, most people with MS are traveling overseas for HSCT treatment, which requires an incredible amount of fundraising. I am therefore competing in the West Lancashire Team Triathlon on Sunday the 26th of August 2018 at Edge Hill University, Ormskirk to raise funds for AIMS. I know there are so many worthwhile charities vying for your donations, but I would please ask you to consider donating to the AIMS registered charity, which is in its infancy, and needs so much support to help others who desperately need HSCT”.
Chris went on to raise much needed funds to help someone with MS having a life changing HSCT treatment.
