I am taking part in the 2019 Sydney MS Walk + Fun Run to fight MS.
Everyone's story is different, and this is mine that I wish to share.
I was diagnosed with MS in October 2018. My symptoms began in February 2018, with vision loss in my right eye (literally woke up one Saturday morning and everything was grey and black shadows, I couldn't see colours, it got to the point that I couldn't see my hand if I put it in front of my face) it was such a terrifying time. Later in the year lower spine sensations/tingles began and then that moved to my feet and legs. MRI showed lesions on my brain and spine.
After I got my diagnosis I wanted to learn and educate myself about MS, I'm still learning and at times it's all very overwhelming. I appreciate all the support from my family and friends.
This year I will be taking part in the MS walk with my partner Richy, and our furbaby dog Cia by my side. Any support and donations are greatly appreciated.
Multiple sclerosis is the most common disease of the central nervous system in young adults and it strikes young people in the prime of their lives.
There is no cure.
1 in 3 Australians know someone living with MS and the average age of diagnosis is just 30 years old. That’s incredible.
So I’m taking on this challenge to help people living with MS get the support they need to achieve their goals and live life to the fullest.
Please DONATE now to support my challenge and change the lives of Australians living with multiple sclerosis.
