When you visit the Oceans of Hope U.K. website, it reads, "Oceans of Hope is for people with MS, led by people with MS." It goes on to say, "Our aim is to offer people from all over the world the opportunity to experience sailing as a way of learning new skills and restoring the self-confidence which can be stolen by MS."
The folks at Oceans of Hope U.K. can make that claim with high confidence. My guest today is the founder of Oceans of Hope U.K., Robert Munns, who lives with MS himself. Robert had what he describes as a life-changing experience while serving as a member of the crew on what turned out to be an unforgettable sailing adventure. Robert's story is one you won't want to miss.
Today, Oceans of Hope U.K. offers anyone living with MS the opportunity to experience that same personal transformation that Robert experienced.
When you review your MRI scans with your neurologist, the focus is on those white matter lesions that characterize MS. However, study results announced at the 2023 ACTRIMS Forum show that white matter lesions are not the cause of severe MS disability. We're breaking down this game-changing research.
And speaking of game changers, we're sharing the details of a small, portable MRI device that can effectively image MS lesions.
We have a lot to talk about! Are you ready for RealTalk MS??!
