MS Australia is getting ready to kiss away MS on World MS day (WMSD) next. The Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign was a massive success last year so it has been continued for WMSD 2012. Kiss Goodbye to MS is raising money to prevent and treat the symptoms of MS, as well as to provide support and services for people with MS. So far, Kiss Goodbye to MS has raised more than AUS$198, 500 in donations for WMSD.
MS Australia is made up of several MS societies which represent all the Australian states. Each society is running several events which coincide with the Kiss Goodbye to MS theme and WMSD. Some of the events include a Kiss Goodbye to MS dinner in Cronulla on 29 May and a Kiss Goodbye to MS cupcake stall in Balaklava, on 30 May. All the events leading up to WMSD are listed on the events page on the Kiss Goodbye to MS website.
With no cause or cure for MS, research into this disease is very important. MS Research Australia and people living with MS will benefit from the funds raised through the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign. With a wealth of activities taking place for WMSD 2012, Australia is defiantly raising MS awareness in a big way this year.
