My Target

200km

Updated: I am walking 100km and spinning 100km to raise funds for MS research

I am walking 100km and spinning 100km in May 2022 to fundraise and raise awareness for MS research - https://www.themay50k.org/s/74215/86322 

As some of you may know, I was diagnosed with MS in 2016 following the sudden loss of vision in my left eye while I was on my honeymoon overseas.  This event followed years of unexplained pain, balance issues, and intermittent loss of feeling in various parts of my body.

Nearly 6 years post my diagnosis, I consider myself fortunate to have a life and career that I love. I attribute this to two things in particular - first, because I am privileged to have access to world leading MS treatments in Australia. Second, because of the unwavering support of my husband Marty, who supports me to manage the MS symptoms I experience every day, especially the ones I don’t talk about and you can’t see. Marty approaches every MS challenge with love and a sense of humour that gets me through my worst days.

Some of my amazing colleagues at Salesforce have set a goal to raise $40,000 towards MS research. In this regard, I want to share that I am enrolled to participate in a clinical trial that focuses on repairing significant myelin damage. Myelin is an insulating layer, or sheath that forms around nerves, including those in the brain and spinal cord. Studies like this have the potential to impact those living with MS and other neurological disorders around the world. 


Thank you for your support.
