I'm walking 50km this May to leave MS behind
Support my challenge to kiss goodbye to MS forever!
At this moment in time, there are over 33,000 Australians living with MS and it has become my mission to make sure those people get the help and the cure that they so deserve. To leave MS behind us where it belongs.
I recently heard a story from a man who was first diagnosed with MS at the age of twelve. After hearing his diagnosis, he turned to his mum and said, “why is this happening to me, mum”. To which she responded, “why not you son”. That is where we are with MS at this moment in time. MS doesn’t pick or choose you; it can happen to anyone of us, BUT it doesn’t always need to be that way.
I want the future response from a Mother to a Child to be, “don’t worry son, MS has a cure, and I will do everything in my power to make sure you get access to that cure as soon as possible”.
I strongly believe that striving for this response is down to us, right now, when we commit to signing up to this challenge. We can make that change happen.
Researchers have told us it is now possible, so while
I am still physically able, I will keep lacing up my shoes, standing tall and
proud, and putting myself through hell and back each May, because we have hope that we can beat this once and for all.
