A TRALEE woman is hoping Kerry people join in Multiple Sclerosis Ireland’s campaign to help ‘Kiss Goodbye to MS’ and raise funds for MS Research and vital services.

The organisation is calling on supporters to support the campaign during the month of May.

Susan Carey was diagnosed at 14 years of age with chronic progressive MS.

“I was always involved in sports from a young age and it crippled me that within three years I couldn’t participate anymore due to progression,” she said.

“Eventually in 2015, when I no longer could walk without constant assistance, I started a new medication. Since then I have gone from strength to strength both physically and mentally. I lead a full life like any other 28 year old. I’m grateful for my MS as I’ve grown to be a strong, independent woman who is capable of overcoming any obstacles in the future.”

Susan is part of the MS Squad, a global tribe of ambassadors, who stand together through extraordinary challenges to show the world they are stronger than MS. Together with the global community Susan vows to Kiss Goodbye to MS.

Throughout the month of May, supporters are asked to ‘go red’ and to Wear, Dare and Share: to wear red or hold a ‘red day’, dare to get sponsored for an MS Ireland sky dive, and share with friends and family to spread the word.

Please text KISS to 50300 to donate €4 and nominate others to take part. For more information on how you can get involved, visit

More than 9,000 people are living with MS in Ireland. Kiss Goodbye to MS will run during the month of May in the third year of the annual campaign.

MS is the most common debilitating neurological condition affecting young adults in Ireland. Three times more women than men are diagnosed with MS. There is no known cause or cure.

Kiss Goodbye to MS is about raising awareness of Multiple Sclerosis and supporting MS Research as well as funding vital services that reduce the impact of MS including physiotherapy, counselling, and newly diagnosed seminars.
