MS and me

When I was four years old, my beautiful Mum was diagnosed with MS. I've watched her deal with this horrible disease over the years with strength, positivity and an ability to truly enjoy her life and its precious moments. 
So when I was diagnosed nearly 10 years ago, I decided there was no other way to do it. I've been so lucky that my bad days are few and far between but a lifestyle change was inevitable. I've grown to accept this slower pace now which allows me to appreciate the small things in life.
I'm doing this walk because I'm so grateful to the MS nurses who helped me when first diagnosed and who continue to check in to this day and provide support when needed. This is such a valuable service and so very needed at a time when you can feel very alone - but you're not when they're at the end of the line.

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.

MS mission is to help people live their lives with multiple sclerosis and provide them with the best long term options and outcomes, while the search for a cure continues.
