Team Member of Team MS

Sponsor me to support people living with MS and fund research to find a cure.

This is my first big bike ride and will mark a significant milestone for me. Even though I have MS, I am the fittest and healthiest that I have ever been. And achieved while working, with 2 small children in tow and a busy and exciting life!

I was diagnosed with MS when I was 30 years old.

I remember the first time I was told that I could have MS. I was being discharged from a hospital on the other side of the world after feeling confused and worried about why I couldn't see properly. When I heard, I had no idea what MS was and it was a real shock. The intervening years before my diagnosis was the hardest. Not knowing. Wondering if it would happen again. Wondering what I should be doing differently. The diagnosis was a relief as it was definite and made my life changes easier.

My diagnosis speed up everything important. I quickly had kids, bought a house, found a job I love and now live my life active and healthy, enjoying the daily routine almost as much as going on holidays.

I have MS. It does not have me!
