Local Voices 004: Living with Multiple Sclerosis


9000 people in Ireland currently live with Multiple Sclerosis, the most common progressive, neurological condition in young adults in the country.

For World MS Day, host Hayden Moore talks to Ballyboden resident Dorota Kenny about being diagnosed with MS, how her symptoms developed, offering advice for anybody just diagnosed with the the disease, and more.

Also joining the show is the CEO of MS Ireland, Ava Battles, to talk about their Virtual Balloon Race on World MS Day to raise much needed funds for the upkeep of their services - which two-thirds of people diagnosed with MS in Ireland use.
