We have also by now paid for our flights and Visas with the donations so in real terms, with extra donations to be added we are now almost €35k raised which is amazing... this is so happening
WHAT IS THE MONEY FOR?
I had a goal of raising €70,000 a figure I have arrived at from several people who have made the exact same journey I am proposing.

There is also the possibility to donate directly to the fund via the campaign bank account at Granard Credit Union.

I am my own medical advocate and everything on here would be what I have learned from personal experience or has been shared with me by people who I have met who have already thread this same path.
I hope you find it useful if you would like to pursue similar...
MS is often called the disease with 1000 faces, it can be difficult to diagnose,but like everything... knowledge is power!, I wasted a lot of time maybe I can save some of yours!!
