I was at work and all of a sudden, my whole right side went numb and I fell from a 3 metre storage container. The next thing I knew I was being rushed to hospital. A week later after having an MRI, I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis.

I couldn’t believe what was happening, I was in total shock as I was only 30 and in the prime of my life. After that initial episode and diagnosis, I completely recovered, and the symptoms disappeared which can be typical of what happens with this condition. I was completely fine for 3 years but then I started to experience symptoms again.

A family member knew of the MS Society and recommended I get in touch to see if they could help. Best thing I ever did! The services and staff there have made a huge difference to me. I’ve attended a falls prevention class and had hydrotherapy and physiotherapy. My physiotherapist has been amazing and done a great job in helping build up my strength which in turn helps me with my mobility.

I would like to say a huge thank you for your support of the MS Game Changer Lottery. Every ticket sold helps the MS Society support me and many others like me living with MS. Funds raised also help fund vital research into a cause and cure for this condition.

Funds raised from the MS Game Changer Lottery help the MS Society continue to provide essential support and services to me and many others like me who are living with this incurable condition and help fund vital research into a cause and cure.
