Argyll and Bute MSP Michael Russell has backed more than 11,000 people afflicted by MS in Scotland through support for the Kiss Goodbye to MS campaign.
Mr Russell said: ‘With so many Scots affected by this disease it is great to see the ground-breaking work being undertaken by MS Society Scotland.
‘I would encourage anyone who can to donate to the cause and help bring an end to the pain lived by MS patients day in day out.’
Morna Simpkins, director for MS Society Scotland said: ‘On this MS Week we would like to highlight the importance of MS research. For more than 11,000 people in Scotland, living with MS is a daily reality.
‘This is why the MS Society is driving cutting-edge research into more – and better treatments to ultimately stop MS.
‘By joining a global group of fundraisers and taking part in Kiss Goodbye to MS, your small sacrifice could help us find new treatments for people living with MS and their loved ones.’
MS is an unpredictable condition that is different for everyone. It affects how a person thinks, feels and moves.
