Participating in my 1st MS Read-a-Thon

My Story

"Sometimes reality is too complex. Stories give it form." Jean Luc Goddard

When I was a kid I could not put a book down for anything. I frequently got in trouble for stowing away in the library at lunchtime.

In 2019 I was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It has been hard on me but especially my family. 

When I saw the MS readathon coming around, I couldn't help but join in. I'm proud of my younger self for participating and I want to pay it forward for the families in front of mine. 

Id be ever so grateful if you were to help me out, but I'm just grateful for organisations like this making such a difficult life situation into something focussed on stories.
