Debbie and I have joined together as a team to support MS Queensland. Debbie is one of my oldest friends and she has secondary Progressive MS. She is an inspiration to all those who meet her and I feel blessed to have met her, way back in the early 70s.
I first met Debbie when I was 9 years old when she helped me catch the school bus home from St Mary’s Rockhampton.
Debbie and I lived in the same suburb, Beserker Heights. She lived in Duthie Avenue and I lived in Mills Avenue. We were only a short distance from each other and felt very lucky to have someone our own age and from the same school in our neighbourhood. We were inseparable and Deb became part of our family.
We had the freedom of kids of the 70s. We had our bikes, and we just had to be home before dark.
We also had strong role models: our working mothers, the nuns Mother Patrick and Sister Joseph, as well as our favourite 70s rock stars, especially Suzie Quatro. We would save up our money from our part time jobs to buy music and we mainly bought singles because they were cheaper. We played Suzie Quatro on repeat and thought we were the “Wild Ones” of Beserker Heights.
On the 6th of October Deb and I will be doing the Moonlight Walk for MS. Please support us and MS Qld.
Your support will provide vital services and support to assist all those affected by MS to live life to their fullest and reach their true potential. Help fund essential services like physiotherapy, occupational therapy, counselling and symptom management, as well as MS research to look for better treatments and ultimately a cure for the disease.
Please DONATE to support our walk and help ensure no one faces MS alone.
