Paddy’s interest in MS and HSCT stems from his day job. Paddy work 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.
This young lady is Becky - one of AIMS trustees. Becky was diagnosed in 2014 with Relapsing Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS) and managed it well, coping with the fatigue of various transatlantic holidays until her symptoms began to change.
In January 2016, Becky’s MS worsed quickly, where she was re-diagnosed as Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS). After many scans, tests and consultations, Becky was offered HSCT at Hammersmith hospital, London in March 2018
The courage and fight Becky had shown since her re-diagnosis has inspired Paddy to the point where he felt compelled to try to help as many people as possible with MS combat this hideous disease.
