The Anne Rowling Clinic has been made possible thanks to a £10 million donation from the author J K Rowling. The Clinic, named after the Ms Rowling’s mother, who died of multiple sclerosis aged 45, will focus on patient-based studies to help find treatments that could slow progression of the disease, working towards the eventual aim of stopping and reversing it.
Work at the clinic will also provide insight into other degenerative neurological conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and motor neurone disease. As with multiple sclerosis, all of these disorders are progressive and incurable.
Thank you for supporting me in my fundraising challenge.
That is awesome! Have you skydived before?
