Marcia Cook is making and selling MS Awareness Ribbons, so far this year she has sold more than 300 ribbons, including bulk orders for Chesterfield and District MS Society and Rotherham and Sheffield MS Society. This is what she says about why she started making awareness ribbons:
"When I was first diagnosed in 1992 I knew nothing about Multiple Sclerosis except that it was incurable. I was not told at the time by the consultant which type of MS I had but I think that was because of the the look of shock on the faces of both my husband and myself. I never thought that when I was having the tests that things could not be put right. I very much took good health for granted. The charities do a good job of informing people of the drugs and treatments that are available but when it comes to awareness week they obviously concentrate on raising funds for themselves otherwise they would not be able to exist. I would hope that one day the orange MS awareness ribbon will be as well as known as the red for AIDS, or the pink for breast cancer.

My name is Jackie Cook and my Mum, Marcia, suffers with Primary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis she was diagnosed in 1992 and to help raise greater awareness of this disease which doesn't get as much publicity as it should I used my cake making skills to raise money for one of the charities that help support those with the disease.
So during MS Awareness week in April/May, I baked and delivered around 25 cakes to local businesses and friends and raised £374.50 for the MS Trust.
