Support my challenge to leave MS behind!

It all happened so quickly from receiving that first text message on a Friday morning from my beautiful, healthy 29 year old daughter to say she had some weird numb feeling in her left side.  Two days later she was admitted to John Hunter Hospital for a series of tests (which she spells out in her bio), and 3 days after this on Wednesday morning the result was conclusive – MS!

In literally the blink of an eye, or in our case 5 days, your whole world changes.  The worst thing about being diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis  is that there is no cure and with 3 times more women than men diagnosed in the prime of their life (20s – 40s mainly) more research is needed as to why this happens and find a cure so people can live the best version of their life.

My daughter Claudia is inspirational and very mentally strong with a great attitude; no time for her to be a victim to this diagnosis!  I’m proud of her for jumping on the MS fundraising challenge straight away to kiss MS goodbye, and for wanting to play a part in changing the lives of everyone suffering with MS for the better. 

I’m walking 50km during May to support her and help make a difference too.  Research is the key to changing the future of MS and this can be costly.

Please support our cause by sponsoring us to help MS research; any amount helps!
