My Progress

I'm 50km this month to leave MS behind

My Progress

50.00km

My Target

50km

Please support my challenge to leave MS behind me!

I’m taking part in The May 50K challenge this May swimming 50kms to raise funds for life-changing research into multiple sclerosis.


Why you ask? 


4 moths ago I was diagnosed with MS.


For those of you that don’t know much about MS, it is a potentially disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system). In MS, the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between your brain and the rest of your body.


MS strikes young people in the prime of their lives. The average age of diagnosis is only 30 years old, and there is no known cure.


2 years ago I started showing a variety of symptoms that I thought were unrelated. Problems with my eyes, coordination and pain in my legs. I was referred to a neurologist and we started digging a little deeper as to what was causing these strange symptoms. After a lumber puncture where a sample of my spinal fluid was taken it was confirmed I have remitting and relapsing multiple sclerosis.


You can help by donating to my page which will support research into the prevention, treatment and finding a cure for multiple sclerosis to change lives. 


Please make a donation and support my challenge to leave MS where it belongs, behind us.


Thank you!
