My Story

I am inspired by the work of Kiss Goodbye to MS and I want to do something to make a difference! I am indebted hugely to MS research. My life with MS began when I was 36, my daughters were 2 and 4. At diagnosis in 1996 treatments were new so we were not immediately put on any treatment to slow progress. I went from being an active mum to one that could not hold a knife and fork, had extreme fatigue, pain and a feeling I was going mad as this had happened overnight with no cause. Within the first year I lost the sight in each eye at a 6 month interval and was legally blind for many months. This was when my neurologist prescribed an interferon drug to slow the disease. To my delight within a few months the fatigue lifted. After 12 months I passed my vision test for my drivers licence. I truly believe without the interferon I would be blind by now as with each relapse I was incurring permanent damage to various parts of my body with some remission. I am now 61 and reasonably fit, I have blurry vision with some colour blindness but am so so grateful to the amazing researchers who keep tirelessly working to understand the disease so a cure can be found. It is imperative there are as many drug options available to try as one drug does not help everyone. I was lucky to be prescribed the drug that did help me. Research has enabled me to go from having to inject every alternate day to only having to inject once a fortnight and a much easier process, it is like a holiday – fantastic and I am lucky not to have side effects. Our fundraising effort involves trekking 50 kms around Frazer Island over 5 days, a feat I would not have been able to even contemplate without research. My youngest daughter is joining me on this journey. Both my daughters are helping me live a healthy lifestyle and raise funds for truly life changing research as there are still many severely affected people with Multiple Sclerosis, each relapse can cause more permanent damage. Please donate to Kiss Goodbye to MS. WE NEED A CURE.
