A Letter A Day… Jenny G

It’s day eleven and today I’m posting another letter from someone called Jenny. This Jenny, however, is not from New Zealand; she’s from the Netherlands. Her journey to being diagnosed with MS was a frightening one, with a doctor first telling her that her symptoms were as a result of metastasised tumours in her brain.
