Our Founder

Amy Thompson

"Hi everyone! I'm Amy, I'm 25 and I live in Manchester. I was diagnosed with RRMS in 2018, just after my 21st birthday. I currently work at the MS Society as Brand Marketing Officer and in my spare time I manage MS Together. I also write a blog www.butyoudontlookill.com where I aim to raise awareness of chronic and invisible conditions like MS.


I am extremely passionate about making sure that young people have the tools and support they need to live the best life they can, despite their MS.

I would like to take this moment to thank every member of MS Together for helping to make it the safe and supportive place that it is. I would also like to say a special thank you to my brilliant admin team and panel who have helped me immensely this past year. So, I am delighted to introduce them below!"
