The team at Medland Dental Centre are getting ready for another big year of fundraising for the MS Society.
Many of you will already know how passionately MDC campaigns in support of the MS Society, however, may not know why. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) affects young females more than any other group and MDC has been touched by this disease in many ways. Our Kelly, who most of you will know was diagnosed 6 years ago after the birth of her second daughter. It was in support of Kelly that we started campaigning so actively for MS 6 years ago.
Since then, one of Kelly's sisters has been diagnosed and the sisters of three more of our staff have been diagnosed with MS. We also have a number of patients with MS in our care. It is for Kelly, and all of the people in the Medland extended family, that we support the MS Society and hope to make a difference.
