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 and 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 2021 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,
