May 27, 2020 – On May 30, World Multiple Sclerosis Day, put on an orange shirt, join hundreds and walk anywhere for the ones with Multiple Sclerosis.

Mirjam Jukić, a well-known name in the media world, is the organizer of the MS walk at Bundek. This year, due to COVID-19, everyone will be walking wherever they want. For those with MS, one can join by taking a photo of the number of steps, sending it to Facebook MS team Croatia, then sharing on your profiles with #HodamZaOneKojiNeMOGU #MSwalk2020 #SvakiKorakSeBroji.

As Mirjam picturesquely described MS for Živim.hr, having MS is like feeling when you sit cross-legged for a long time and then get up. “Your legs are numb, and you feel like they are not yours. Now imagine living with that feeling constantly,” said the 44-years-old president of MS Tim Hrvatska.


Multiple sclerosis is a chronic inflammatory disease of the central nervous system, meaning that inflammatory damage can affect the cerebellum and cerebellum, brainstem, and spinal cord. It affects women twice more than men.

“I felt the first symptoms back in 2001, one year after I gave birth to my first child,” says Mirjam, who is now a mother of three. “But I was diagnosed with MS in 2014 when my sight worsened.”

Depression and anxiety are often coming along MS. Not everyone can accept another diagnosis when they struggle with realizing they already have MS. “Talk about your problems, move, exercise, dance… Try to have a positive attitude. We have to look ahead,” says Mirjam, who also had a hard time accepting the diagnosis. “But don’t give up! It is up to us to bring consciousness to people, explain what is going on in our bodies. So, wear this orange t-shirt proudly on May 30, and join us!”
