Who We Help

  • Oxford University

    A 2-year study by Professor Lars Fugger and his team at Oxford Centre for Neuroinflammation at The University of Oxford based at John Radcliffe Hospital.

    This study is looking at how environmental triggers may affect certain genes and how this may alter the risk of MS and its clinical progression. The team will analyse blood immune cells taken from those with MS before and during treatment with a specific drug which is currently used in MS.  This will give information about how these immune cells change through the treatment course and how these changes correlate with the individual’s clinical response to the treatment.

    Studying the Effects of Pregnancy in Multiple Sclerosis – 2016-2018

    A 2-year study by Professor Lars Fugger and his team at Oxford Centre for Neuroinflammation at The University of Oxford based at John Radcliffe Hospital.

    This study looked at the changes in the blood in pregnant women with MS and how this information could be utilised in developing new therapeutic options for those with MS. This was a pilot study and the same team undertook subsequent research based on this preliminary research.

  • UK MS Therapy Centres

    In 2019, Aims2Cure set ourselves a challenge to mark our 20th anniversary year.  We decided to help as many MS Therapy Centres in the United Kingdom as we could, purchasing much needed pieces of equipment to help improve the lives of people living with Multiple Sclerosis. In total we have spent over £80,000 on equipment for 21 MS Therapy Centres including a TREADMILL AND HARNESS, a SEATED CLIMBER, a PORTABLE HOIST, a TRANSIT WHEELCHAIR, an EXERCISE BIKE, a STANDING FRAME, an APS THERAPY MACHINE, a MODULAR CHAIR, an OXYGEN CONCENTRATOR.  We are still adding more centres to our list and are very proud to have helped so many people.  We will continue to do more.

  • The Chilterns MS Centre

    Aims2Cure has a close association with The Chilterns MS Centre. Based in Halton, Buckinghamshire, the centre provides a range of drug-free symptomatic management therapies for anyone with MS no matter where they live, as well as help and advice to their families and carers. In March 2016, Aims2Cure donated a huge £15,000 to help fund the cost of their much needed Physiotherapists. Physio can help tackle a wide range of problems for people with MS including increasing physical independence, mobility and fitness.  We are delighted that since July 2008, Aims2Cure have donated in total a massive £69,000.

  • The Michele Elster Fund

    In 2007, Aims2Cure established the Michele Elster Fund. Michele was a wonderful young woman who tragically died from MS in 2006. The fund was set up in her name to help other MS sufferers with their everyday lives by alleviating some of the obstacles life may present. In the past few years, we have purchased a scooter to help with mobility; enabled a garden to be decked so that an individual is no longer confined to the house; adapted a car to help a young mother with the school run; revamped a bathroom with essential equipment to ease the daily routine and helped 21 different national MS Centres purchase essential equipment. This type of help is crucial and makes such a difference to the lives of MS sufferers. With the blessing of Michele’s family, Aims2Cure have been able to make this difference.
