Cody Joy

One foot in front of the other

I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis not long after my 21st birthday. As the most common neurological condition that attacks the central nervous system; the impacts of multiple sclerosis can be huge, unpredictable, and scary. 

It has taken a lot from many. There is currently no known cure.

When it seems I no longer recognise myself due to another unexpected and unwelcome loss of abilities, I have always found it healing to seek discovery in an unknown landscape as soon as I am able. For me, the natural environment is the best place to recognise that I am part of a bigger whole and begin again on the journey of putting myself back together.

 

This is why in 2022 I'll be trekking sections of the Overland Track in Tasmania to Conquer Cradle Mountain for MS!

 

The services and support provided by MS Limited are invaluable. I know firsthand the critical need for research, support, and reliable information. Having somewhere to turn when things get rough can be the difference between hope and despair, which is no small thing.

 

Now that another acute period of health is behind me, I am starting the new year focused on what I can do to contribute after all the help and care I have received getting through one of the toughest periods in my life.

 

If you would like to help create hope for thousands of Australians living with multiple sclerosis, and those close to them, please donate now and support my trek to raise vital funds and awareness for MS.

 

Your generosity really does make a difference.

 

With kind thoughts and gratitude,

Cody

One foot in in front of the other 👣

Thursday 3rd Mar

2 years ago today, I had a bone marrow transplant. I was fortunate to be part of a research trial using AHSCT with the hope of halting the progression of relapsing-emitting Multiple Sclerosis (MS). Like the road leading to that moment in hospital, it was hard and pretty damn scary.

Since then, I'm doing really well. I reckon better than ever ✨

It hasn't been easy, but with a commitment to exploration, the pull of ever-changing nature and the support of my golden circle (you know who you are) has all led me to this day, here and now.

I'm so happy and thankful for this chance at what feels like a whole new life. 

Please help me channel this new found energy towards helping others living with MS and those close to them.
