Multiple Sclerosis doesn't have one face it has many.
During awareness week, MS Waikato will be sharing the stories of a handful of our 293 clients whose lives are impacted by Multiple Sclerosis. MS Waikato are providing support, education, information and advocacy services for not only MS clients and their family/whanau and carers; but also Huntington’s Disease too, service provision is throughout the greater Waikato and Coromandel region.
