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. The average age of diagnosis is between 20 and 40 years of age, although symptoms may begin much earlier. Three out of four people living with multiple sclerosis are women. No two cases of multiple sclerosis are identical and the severity and progression of the condition cannot be predicted.
At MS we want everyone living with this chronic disease to get the support they need to live the best life they can. Your fundraising 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.
