My Story

Some of you may know that 17 years ago I had a terrifying MS scare. I gave my then Fiancé a way out as I feared he'd be soon pushing me around in a wheelchair. Don STILL chose to marry me and we now have two healthy children. Thankfully MS tests were non conclusive, and other than the odd tingles I now feel fine. I often wonder how different my life would have been. I have friends with MS, one a musician and the other a runner. Two hobbies I also love. I have watched how MS has affected them, one with blindness at age 14, and the other, no longer able to run due to stumbles and fall injuries. I have never run a full marathon before, but I have been training to run the 5-6hours it will take me through Sydney on Sunday 17th Sept this year. Come and support me, cheer and donate. I am scared but not as scared as I was thinking I had MS. I am going to run while I can. Who knows what tomorrow with bring. I hope with my efforts and yours, it may bring and end to this horrible disease they call MS. I am taking part in Blackmores Sydney Running Festival 2017 to raise much needed funds for MS. Their work is really important, and I want to do what I can to help. But there is only so much I can do on my own. You can help too, by donating to my page. Any amount you can give makes a difference! You can also support me by encouraging others to get involved, too. Please email the link to my page to your friends and family, or share it on social media. Thank you for your generosity and support -- it means a lot to me. Together we can help MS create the world we want to see.

About my cause: MS

Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system affecting more young adult Australians than any other neurological condition. Every working day four Australians are diagnosed with multiple sclerosis which equates to an additional 1,000 diagnosed every year.

At MS we want everyone living with this chronic disease to get the support they need to live the best life they can. Your support enables people living with multiple sclerosis to get support to meet their goals and live well, and ensure that their journey is not undertaken alone. 

Your support provides a range of MS Services including:

- phone and email support through MS Connect
- free, specialised consultation with a health professional through MS Advisor
- NDIS assistance through MS Support Coordination
- MS Wellbeing services to support goals for living well, from exercise and nutrition to specialist employment support
- around the clock support when things get challenging, through MS Respite and Residential service.

Thank-you for your support to ensure that no-one faces MS alone.
