Musician battles against multiple sclerosis

A talented young singer and pianist is determined to still make music after multiple sclerosis robbed her of the ability to play the instrument she loves. After winning talent shows as a youngster and attending stage school, Bee Timms, 22, had launched a business teaching children the piano and singing, also working in a busy bar, until she woke one morning unable to see properly. She developed a loss of feeling in her right leg and an inability to speak, walk or feed herself. After being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) - a lifelong condition affecting the brain and the nerves - in April this year, she showed dogged determination, and Bee, of Shrivenham, Oxfordshire, taught herself to speak again within a few short months, and is determined she will return to performing.
