My story

This year we are doing things a little different and I would love you to be part of it. 

My story however is still the same......It all started in 2004 and after countless hospital admissions, the loss of some of my beloved hair and an attack affecting my left leg, left hand and arm, I was finally given a diagnosis. This diagnosis was related to demyelination and I received 6 months of a special treatment. 

With a few adjustments and the help of incredible family and friends, in particular my amazing parents and brother. I managed to get on with my life, finish schooling, finish my undergraduate degree and begin travelling. 

It was then in 2012 after returning from an overseas holiday that I was told that I had experienced a relapse and was formally diagnosed with MS. My left leg and arm took a small brunt and my limp became more noticeable, but I was put on treatment and this allowed me to remain overall stable.

I changed my career and began studying a Master of Social Work degree as I wanted an opportunity where I could help others. 

I however, experienced a major relapse in September 2014 where I was now reliant on a walking stick. I was only 27 years old. I pushed through and finished my degree because I was not going to let MS win. 

Over the past 6 years I have had many ups and downs with my MS but it is always important to remember how lucky I am to have the people that I do in my life. 

My MS is physically declining and I cannot do anything to stop it......more frustrating than I can ever explain.

This year has been rough, with another hospital admission. It has now been 17 years since I ran for the last time, went up and down stairs un- assisted or held a full glass in my left hand.

This is where I ask for your help, as a team we have raised over $54,000 in eight years but I am determined that in ten years this can be between $60,000 and $70,000. To my amazing uncle Steve who has helped raise alot of that money over the years, I am so grateful. To my family and friends your fundraising is helping my future, so thank you.

Please donate towards my future by donating towards me or my team and help give me hope that I will get to live my life to the best of my ability.

Walk, Run or Roll, I’m taking part!

I’m joining in the fun of the MS Walk Run Roll, to help support Australians living with multiple sclerosis.
