The charity I have chosen is MS Ireland and the reason so is because my Dad was diagnosed with it early last year. It all started off with what we thought was flu but got worse and worse till he was bed bound. He lost sight in one eye and has constant pins and needles in his hand and leg on the left side as well as losing his balance. This is when we started to worry about him. We brought him to the Doc and they refereed him to Ardkeen Hospital where test was carried out and we were sent home. Got called back to the Specialist who wanted to confirm the results and confirm the type with an MRI. We waited weeks on end for a date for it and in the end, it ended up we had to pay and go private and got a date for the following week. (Irish Health System is a joke). The MRI confirmed the results and told us it was Relapse Remitting MS (The best of a bad lot). Eventually Dad started his treatment the beginning of the year, since then the support we have received from MS Nurse Martha and also from MS Society.

The task involved consulting with the client about colours, styling, and site structure. It also involved advising on SEO, ongoing marketing efforts, social media presence and online advertising. The website needed an option for ecommerce which could be switched on and off between catalogue mode and ecommerce mode as some of their products require an in-shop consultation prior to purchase.
