Event/service information

Do you worry about telling your children about your MS? Or how much you should tell them? You’re not alone & we’ll be discussing this with our panel as part of our information webinar. Join us this August as we look at living with MS and having a family. 

An MS diagnosis has a huge impact on you and your family. And you may be wondering how much you should be telling your children about your MS. You may also be concerned about overloading them or confusing them.

Perhaps you're worried they've noticed your symptoms. Or that you need to rest more and want to find out more about having age appropriate conversations.

We’ll be joined by a panel of people living with MS who have children at various ages. We'll chat about telling children about MS and learning as a family to adapt to life with MS. We'll also be joined by an MS nurse who’ll be sharing their experiences of communicating with children, and opening up the discussion around supporting your children.
