Committed to the Cause
Paddy’s interest in MS and HSCT stems from his day job. Paddy works as an estate agent, and on one of the luckiest days of his life he sold a property to a young lady who has MS.
I was diagnosed with MS in 2011. Initially, I was able to carry on as normal. However, the progression of my MS seemed to accelerate in 2015, transitioning to SPMS, which prompted me to seek treatment.
I was diagnosed with highly active remitting and relapsing MS with symptoms that had started to affect my mobility. From symptoms (Jan, 2018) to diagnosis (April 2018) to treatment (August,2018), all happened within the same year!
In March 2018 Damien went to Moscow and received HSCT to halt his MS progression. So far so
good! Time will tell, but something has definitely changed within him.
A sudden major relapse and completely unexpected diagnosis of RRMS in June 2015 turned her life upside down. A fast and aggressive progression meant that by the time she underwent HSCT in Moscow in July 2017, she had an EDSS score of 6.5 and was confirmed to have SPMS.
