Hi You may remember that my mum donated her brain and spinal cord to the MS tissue bank. Last month, two years after the donation, I had a report through from the neuro pathology team. It confirmed that my mum had suffered chronic MS and associated symptoms of dementia, which it said may have "overlapped" with the MS symptoms. I just wanted to say how helpful it was to me to have this written report to show that Mum's donation had been useful to the team (who work in London), and how it has comforted me. I hope that doesn't sound strange. It helps to know, somehow, that some good may have come from her donation, in helping understand MS and dementia more.
