Participating in my 1st MS Read-a-Thon

Mackay MS Team

My Story

I am doing this, firstly, for my beautiful mother, who inspires me everyday to push through the challenges life gives you. She is beautiful, strong, kind, caring and selfless and I hope that one-day a cure can be found for this debilitating disease.
I am also doing this for my uncle (who lost his life due to MS complications)
I am also doing this for the Mackay MS community, all of whom I have got to know through mum, I am in awe of every single one, and the way they keep moving despite the challenges of living with Multiple Sclerosis.
