My son Yianni’s memorial fund
When my 25 son Yianni died in 2016 we had a collection in his memory- we raised £7000.Thank you to all who donated.  I had just been diagnosed with MS and I was very ill -using a walking stick at times and contemplating a wheel chair on bad days. The £7000 was to be used to help people with MS but I wasn’t quite sure how to use it. I was lucky to discover Overcoming MS which is very well researched and having followed the protocol – I can still work!! Overcoming  MS now has a bursary fund in Yianni’s memory for young people who suffer from this horrible disease which often strikes people down in their mid twenties. Yianni for Overcoming MS funds their attendance at a retreat to learn about the protocol.  If you know anybody under 35 with MS they could apply for this. Here is more information:
This fund will be on-going and I plan to keep raising money for it.
