Movement for Hope is a new charitable organisation, which raises awareness and support for neurological diseases, such as multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease and stroke, by creating multimedia art projects. Neurological diseases are a leading cause of disability in the world, for people of all ages. We fund projects for neurological diseases and charities to support (i) cutting-edge research, (ii) professional education and (iii) equipment purchase, such as wheelchairs and stair lifts. Our creative arts projects involve collaborating artists, neuroscientists and awareness advocates. We are called Movement for Hope because movement inspires both art and science, and describes our progression towards a physically and psychologically healthy society.

CCSVI as the Cause of Multiple Sclerosis
Paolo Zamboni MD published his first paper describing the theory that MS may be a type of venous insufficiency in 2006. Since that time, he has published numerous other groundbreaking studies that have further elucidated the idea.
But Dr Zamboni isn’t the first MS researcher to notice problems with veins in MS; the fact that enlarged veins are in the center of MS lesions was noted as early as the 1860′s and is well known today. But what do these widened veins tell us about MS?
This book follows this journey of discovery and highlights related MS research that supports the theory. Referencing over 250 research papers published in the field of MS, it tells the MS story from a venous perspective.For interested patients it also includes a detailed section on how these venous issues could be treated –the so called “liberation therapy” or procedure–highlighting concerns that patients should discuss with their personal physician if they should seek treatment.
There are also 12 patient stories including several who were treated at Stanford in 2009 as well as the story of one of the patients treated by Dr Zamboni in 2006. Reviewed by the leading researchers in this field including Dr Zamboni with a foreword by E. Mark Haacke PhD, this book is a must have for people wanting to understand this model.
AUTHOR MARIE RHODES
Marie RHodes is a registered nurse who has had MS since 1991. In 2009 she was the second person treated in the US for CCSVI in an observational study at Stanford. She wrote the well researched and highly acclaimed book “CCSVI as the Cause of Multiple Sclerosis: The Science behind the Controversial Theory” published by McFarland in 2011. Marie is also on the science advisory board of the Annette Funicello Research Fund for Neurological Diseases and patient advisory board of the CCSVI Alliance. She conbtributes 10% of her proceeds to CCSVI research.
Note: Marie Rhodes is an RN and patient/advocate for MS who is active in the online community. 10% of author proceeds goes to CCSVI Alliance, a 501(3)(c) charity for CCSVI research where she is a volunteer patient board member.
Reviews by Medical Professionals
From the Foreword by E. Mark Haacke PhD:
“This book is an overview of the history of the role of veins in multiple sclerosis, the current status of research related to CCSVI, the politics that have ensconced it during the last year, patient testimonials, and current directions in imaging and treatment. It will be a valuable resource for medical professionals and patients seeking information to understand the new paradigm.”
From F. Alfons Schelling MD, Author of “Multiple Sclerosis: the Image and Its Message”:
“Congratulations! This book gives an exceptionally well-informed, critically balanced update on the state of the art in CCSVI-research. Whether medical expert or MS patient, I can’t imagine anyone being interested in MS and CCSVI who would not greatly benefit from it. Struggling to discover what MS, be it vein-conditioned or not, ultimately is, here I learned how a soberly thinking CCSVI patient thinks and feels – and what ought to be done about it. I would be delighted if I could buy a personally signed copy of your book. ….”
Reviews by Non-Medical Readers:
“This book is good on so many levels. It is a very thorough picture. If you think you know everything already, you might be surprised. This book is just stuffed with information, but don’t worry, if you can’t quite digest it all, there are plain language summaries at the end of each chapter. If you are new and want to learn more, I don’t think there is a better place. I have two copies, one for my own reference and one I share so others can really see how information packed this is. Thank you so much Marie, for all you put into this!” B Carrigan
“This well written book helps doctors and patients understand the important connection of venous insufficiency and Multiple Sclerosis. An indispensable resource for anyone living with MS.” R Zeller
“This Book was the reason my Dr. got on board with CCSVI. I lent him my copy, he started researching and contacting Dr.s that where referenced. I had CCSVI done yesterday! THANKS Marie!!!!” T.Campbell

Tips on How to Look and Feel Good
Looking good can lift your spirits and make you feel more attractive. But how do you boost self-esteem when fatigue, limited mobility, poor eyesight, and your budget are in the way?
Here are some ideas and resources:
Have someone take new measurements for the way you stand or sit now. Hemlines, pant legs, garment backs, and shirt sleeves might all need adjustments to make your old favorites workable and comfortable or your new purchases fit properly. Many catalog companies and department stores do alterations. So do many dry cleaners.
Shortening a jacket a few inches can make a big difference if you’re sitting most of the time.
If fastening buttons has become a problem, have them sewn onto the outside of shirts or dresses, and have Velcro strips put inside to hold the garment shut.

how the idea came about
In 1997, the idea for the SlipOn™ Swimsuit came about as I was waiting after a Parkinsons’ aquatic therapy class had ended. One gentleman said, “I have to wait up to 30 minutes for my wife to take off her swimsuit and get dressed again.” I had not thought this a handicap for people with special needs. At the time, I was selling a tie-on swimsuit and I sent her one to try. She could not use the suit because she had neither strength nor flexibility in her hands. I hired a swimsuit designer and we worked for 8 months looking at different concepts to solve this problem.
Finally we came up with the concept READ MORE on About Us

“Why I am here and what I intend to do…..
The daily struggles with a diagnoses of Multiple Sclerosis which started as just inconvenient until Jan. 2011, when I was hospitalized for three weeks and came home in a wheelchair and unable to walk. The struggles we went through the following months were tremendous. We took our anger and turned it around to create a much needed Community Center to help educate, support and lend a hand to those in our area facing the same struggles we had; Restore Hope In Our Community Trust for us by us.”
