Jolene’s MS treatment journey

Update posted by Michelle Johnson On Dec 12, 2016

Last week Jolene travelled to Mexico to begin her treatment journey. It started on Monday with an appointment at the clinic, followed by meetings with various professionals: neurologist, cardiologist etc. Also an MRI scan and blood tests.

On Friday chemotherapy started and was repeated again on Saturday.

On Sunday Jolene received the first of the injections to stimulate the stem cells from the bone marrow. Injections are given every 12 hours for a week, in the apartment. Jolene is not back in the clinic until this course of injections is complete. In the meantime she will be resting up and taking things easy.

If you would like to follow her personal blog, which she updates when she can, please go to her Facebook page 'Breaking Free Jolene's HSCT Journey'.

Thank you for all your support and well wishes. It means so much to Jolene x

A huge thanks to everyone who has donated so far, we have now reached over £2,000 on this page alone, which is fantastic!


Friends and family (and Jolene!) have been busy with other fundraising events too: a variety concert in the 'big kirk', Sunday teas, sale tables, raffle, quiz sheets and collection tubs in various shops.


Delighted to announce the grand total raised so far is an amazing £10,000!!!


Thanks for all of your support. It means so much to Jolene that everyone is thinking of her and wishing her all the best x
