Freda, a long term Branch member was a regular at theLinney,passed away recently. A donation of £400.80 fromFamily & Friends to MS Doncaster & District Branch.
I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.
The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow –
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
And he sometimes gets so little that there's none of him at all.
He hasn't got a notion of how children ought to play,
And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close beside me, he's a coward you can see;
I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to
One morning, very early, before the sun was up,
I rose and found the shining dew on every buttercup;
But my lazy little shadow, like an arrant sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.

More and more research into understanding
and treating progressive MS is being done – there's now
real momentum and hope of finding new treatments.
Progressive MS is our top research priority and that of theglobal research community – with new knowledge beinggained, new projects funded and clinical trials underway,there's hope on the horizon.
What causes MS progression? Our understanding of how disability progression in MS happens has improved over recent years - but we still needmore answers.
We now understand that damage within the brain and spinal cord accumulates over time, resulting in the worsening ofdisability. This damage is caused by many factors, includingthe attack of myelin, the build-up of harmful debris, the lossof functional myelin-making cells and an increase ininflammation.
Over time, this environment causes nerve cells to die (a process called neurodegeneration) and can lead to thepermanent accumulation of disability. There are currently notreatments available that can keep nerve cells healthy orregenerate nerve cells. But momentum is building inprogressive MS research and several major breakthroughshave been made to date.
Researchers are working towards the development of drugsthat have the potential to slow or even halt progression, withmajor developments being made in the research areas ofmyelin repair, neuroprotection, stem cell therapy andimmunomodulation.
There's also research looking at other aspects of progressive MS, such as improving symptom relief and thesupport on offer.
Scientists around the world are developing potentialremyelination therapies, which could enhance recovery fromrelapses and protect nerve fibres from damage.
Exciting breakthroughs have been made by researchersworking together at our world-class research centres in Cambridge and Edinburgh. The first positive clinical trial result for a potential myelin repair therapy, in the form ofanti-LINGO-1 , was also announced in 2015.
Neuroprotection is an incredibly promising area of MSresearch, and several positive clinical trial results havealready been announced.
In 2014, simvastatin was shown to slow the worsening ofdisability in people with secondary progressive MS in aphase 2 clinical trial. Then in early 2015, initial results froma phase 2 clinical trial (part-funded by the MS Society)showed that phenytoin could protect nerve cells in the opticnerve from damage in people with optic neuritis.
We're co-funding MS SMART, a groundbreaking clinical trial for secondary progressive MS. In a first for MS research, itis investigating whether three drugs used for otherconditions could slow or stop disability progression. Thedrugs have been shown to have neuroprotective propertiesin the laboratory and small studies in people with MS, andthe trial is now well underway.
We're also funding another trial testing whether amiloride could be a neuroprotective treatment. This trial involvespeople with optic neuritis, to look at the effect of amilorideon the optic nerve specifically. If amiloride or phenytoin(mentioned above) could keep the optic nerve healthy, then they could possibly protect allnerves in the brain and spinalcord.
Several clinical trialsinvestigating other potentialneuroprotective treatmentsare underway. You can find out about treatments that arecurrently in phase 2 and 3 clinical trials for people withprogressive MS on our treatments in the pipeline webpage Stem cells could potentially change the way the immunesystem behaves, repair or replace damaged tissue, orprotect nerve cells from damage.

MS Life 2016
The MS Society's leading information and lifestyle event, MS Life, is returning in 2016. MS Life is the biggest event inEurope for people affected by MS, and is an unmissableopportunity to come and meet other volunteers from acrossthe UK.
There will be 40 different interactive information sessions as well as a huge lifestyle exhibition to browse whilemaking new friends and finding out what's new in the worldof MS.
Following on from the success of MS Life 2014 held inManchester, MS Life has a new home for 2016 - London.
We're also moving the event to later in the year, so the dates to mark on your calendar are 17-18 September atExCeL London.
A little boy was waiting for his mother to come out of the grocery store.
As he waited, he was approached by a man who asked, "Son, can you tell me where the post office is?" The little boy replied, "Sure, just go straight down the street a couple of blocks and turn to your right." The man thanked the boy kindly and said, "I'm the new pastor in town, and I'd like for you to come to church onSunday. I'll show you how to get to Heaven." The little boy replied with a chuckle, "Awww, come on; you don't even know the way to the post office!"
