She said: "I was diagnosed in January 2004, so it has been over six years now, but I believe I have had it since I was a young child. When I was about nine I remember playing netball and feeling I had very tight calves but I just put it down to growing pains.
"I have secondary, progressive MS so it has progressed. I was able to do many things myself that I can't now. I am using a wheelchair now or walking aids like crutches, and I have carers who come in to give me personal care and do my domestic tasks, whereas before I did everything myself.
"I couldn't imagine myself being fully recovered at this stage because of all the symptoms I am having but it would be fantastic if it worked."
